The Reader is known for reading books, symbolically telling us the place for reading or gaining knowledge. The sculptors required two stones to get the statue of The Reader. The primary stone is being carved in an object's shape like a man without any details on the body parts. The object is holding a book in the hand with one leg folded, and the background is with an open book, which indicates the library is available for all the knowledge seekers.
Secondary stone is being carved with one leg hanging down, and the object is sitting on books, which means that a vast amount of books are available in the library to grow the knowledge with big space of reading room at the library.
