Incredible “Statue Of Love!” Moving “Love” Statues You Must See To Believe!

Look At this Incredible Moving “Statue Of Love!”

Here is why I love to travel: when you discover amazing places like this in the country of Georgia – the moving “statue of love!”

Yes, it moves!

The terrific Guardian website describes them this way:

‘Man and Woman’ by Georgian sculptor Tamara Kvesitadze is pretty striking on its own – two towering human made out of metallic discs – but the installation becomes even more impressive when you realise the statues are moving.

Representing a Muslim boy, Ali, and a Christan Georgian princess, Nino, characters from a novel by Azerbaijani author Kurban Said, the figures draw closer, kissing, before continuing on their route and passing through one another, eventually parting and facing in opposite directions, representative of the characters’ separation by the invasion of Soviet Russia.

The country of Georgia is located at the crossroads of Western Asia and Eastern Europe – the Black Sea to the west, Russia to the north, and Turkey and Armenia lie south. The capital and largest city is Tbilisi.

As The Guardian notes:

The statues spring into life every day at 7pm in the seaside town of Batumi, Georgia, their journey happening slowly over 10 minutes.

‘Man and Woman’, re-christened “Ali and Nino”, was designed in 2007 but not installed until 2010 – it’s been delighting passers-by ever since.

Paweł R. posted this incredible video on youtube a couple of years ago with this description:

“The Statue of Love sculpture inspired by love story of “Ali and Nino” 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.”

There are shorter versions, but this one, at dusk, lasts three minutes, has music on it and is beautiful to watch!

This is why I love to travel, to discover amazing new things like this – it reminds me of the story I posted about the eastern European country that boasts of having more marble buildings than any country in the world!

  1. It’s a great idea nicely executed.

  2. There are amazing statues around the world I would never see if not for blogs. Different minds see things differently, thankfully.

  3. That looks amazing, John. despite seeing a lot of the Soviet Union, I never got down to Georgia.
    Best wishes, Pete.
