This incredible Obra Maestra is located in Batumi, the capital of Georgian republic of Adjara and was created by Tamara Kvesitadze, a Georgian sculpture. These sculptures of a man and a woman begin to move every day at 7:00 PM. The 2 figures slowly move towards each other, getting close and close, until they touch as if they will kiss. Then blend and merge on into the other and continue their wonderful journey in their opposite directions.
A powerful love story that is short and meaningful which renews and repeats itself every day at 7:00 pm standing as a monument to an impossible love story between a Muslim boy and a Georgian princess.
“The Statue of Love sculpture, inspired by the love story of “Ali and Nino,” was created by Georgian artist Tamar Kvesitadze. The story is similar to Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and tells of an Azerbaijani youth who falls in love with a Georgian princess but dies defending his country. The 7-ton statues start their motion at 7 P.M every day and are controlled by computer and lit with dramatic color lighting.”
