About Art – Bronze Statuettes in Tbilisi’s Rustaveli Avenue

Rustaveli Avenue (Georgian: რუსთაველის გამზირი) in central Tbilisi is named after the medieval Georgian poet, Shota Rustaveli. The Avenue starts at Freedom Square and extends for about 1.5 km. Small bronze statues of old Georgian characters line both sides of the avenue for much of its length.

The statues were sculpted by talented young Georgian artist Levan Bujiashvili (Georgian: ლევან ბუჯიაშვილი), whose sculptures can be found throughout Tbilisi.
