The Moving Man And Woman Symbolizes Tragic Love

Created by the Georgian sculptor Tamara Kvesitadze in Batumi these two steel figures symbolize immortal love. The sculptures represent the Muslim boy Ali and Nino, the Gregorian princess from a famous novel written in 1937 by the Azerbaijani author Kurban Said. The book is about a tragic love story with the lovers separated by soviet invasion of the region. Installed in 2010, the statues start moving at 7 PM every day and after embracing for a short while they again separate. The story of Ali and Nino is very popular and is available on Amazon.
