Mother of Georgia

MRQ3+7R2, Tbilisi, Georgia

Mother of Georgia as known Kartlis Deda is a monument in Georgia’s capital Tbilisi.

The statue was erected on the top of Sololaki hill next to the Narikala Fortress in 1958, the year Tbilisi celebrated its 1500th anniversary. Prominent Georgian sculptor Elguja Amashukeli designed the twenty-meter aluminum figure of a woman in Georgian national dress. Mother of Georgia symbolizes the Georgian national character: in her left hand she holds a bowl of wine to greet those who come as friends, and in her right hand is a sword for those who come as enemies as expression of the history of our city of Tbilisi, the endless battles with the enemies and the welcoming of friendly guests.
