One day, me and my friends were walking on Rustaveli avenue when we discovered this huge round ”Rotonda-style” structure we had never seen before, although we have always walked in the area.
The building is 9 meters high and it comprises 145 sculptures both inside and out! The sculptures are a little unusual – there are all naked people and golden stars on the ceiling. This monument always reminds me that Tbilisi hides so many places that I need to discover to feel that excitement of finding something again and again.
So, the author of this bronze structure is Zurab Tsereteli, the owner of MOMA museum Tbilisi. The structure itself is a mini version of the big one and is in the yard of the museum. Zurab is one of the most important Georgian artists, he is also known for St. George’s monument on Freedom square.
