The lighthouse Ar Men situated in French Brittany is depicted at another drawing. According to Ukrinform, Sushchenko wrote that on the back of the picture that it was built on the reef of Ile de Sein Island during the low water line. Due to its isolation, the building of the lighthouse lasted for 14 years and the sailors call it ‘hellish hell’.
