The 26 foot Moving Statues that play out a tragic love story

Statues that move once a day

Acting out a tragic love story
Normally statues stay where they are put and do not move, but not these two. Sculptor Tamara Kvesitadze made these two 26 foot statues that move once a day, acting out a tragic love story.

Located in the seaside city of Batumi, Georgia, the two figures represent a Muslim boy, Ali, and a Georgian princess, Nino, from a famous 1937 novel by Azerbaijani author Kurban Said.

The tragic story ends with the lovers separated by the invasion of Soviet Russia. Once a day the statues move together for a brief kiss and then separate their ways. Sad but relatable. If you have the chance, go see it at the seaside city of Batumi, Georgia.
