The Men is a public artwork created by Armenian sculptor Davit Minasyan in 2007, it commemorates Edmond Keosayan's 1972 film of the same name, and comprises four statues, depicting the film's stars, the actors Mher Mkrtchyan, Avetik Gevorkyan, Armen Ayvazyan, and Azat Sherents.

The idea for the statue belongs to film director Edmond Keosayan's sons, David and Tigran, who wanted to erect a monument in Yerevan dedicated to their father's 70th birthday and the 35th anniversary of the film. They decided to place the four heroes of the film "Men" in the exact place where the film was shot. 

The opening ceremony took place on October 13, 2007. The director's family members were also present: his wife, actress Laura Gorgyan, sons David and  Tigran Keosayans,  and the only alive actor Armen Ayvazyan, who at that time was seriously ill and died a month later.
