The upper part of the Vazha-Pshavela Avenue and its blocks, at first glance, doesn’t seem like an amusing place to explore, but this area hides fascinating, or even peculiar and hilarious gems.

I have already mentioned most of these gems in my other articles, such as the Vazha-Pshavela avenue itself, decorated by the Vazha-Pshavela monument, and Bolero Bakery just uphill. So, if you’re on your path to visiting those spots recommended by me, you might as well spare extra 5 minutes to gawk at a Spanish creation.

A monument was created by a Spanish artist back in 2017, dedicating it to the 25th anniversary of Georgia-Spain diplomatic relations and I had the honor of attending its opening. The creation reflects modern artistic trends in its simplicity and provocation of a whole range of emotions and reactions. While this form of craft may not be surprising for Western societies, it seems funny and confusing for Georgians (myself included).

I highly recommend checking the monument out and observing how the locals react to it. You might be in for comic relief (spoiler: most locals think it’s a seat).
