I spent a lovely morning at Batumi Miracle park and photographed here a lot, when was turn to photograph Ali and Nino, I had already switched my kit lens to more powerful telephoto lens - got a really cool close ups at the end.
Ali and Nino Statue of Love
Created by Georgian artist Tamar Kvesitadze (Georgian: თამარ კვესიტაძე), the figures move toward each other and merge into one piece every 10 minutes. (Source: ABOUT ART – “STATUE OF LOVE” IN BATUMI)
It was fun to learn that idea behind the statue was taken from Kurban Said novel with the same naming - Ali and Nino a novel about a romance between a Muslim Azerbaijani boy and Christian Georgian girl in Baku in the years 1918-1920.
