These Moving Statues Change Places To Tell A Tragic Love Story

Published on 3 November, 2015 at 3:00 pm By

Located at the seaside city of Batumi, Georgia, Georgian artist Tamara Kvesitadze’s  26-foot-tall steel sculpture is an example of amazing design and mechanism. Originally designed in 2007 with the name ‘A Women and Man’, the sculpture was installed in 2010 and subsequently renamed ‘Ali and Nino’.

These moving statues symbolize the story of two lovers from different religious backgrounds. The two figures represent two famous characters – a Muslim boy Ali and Georgian Nino from a 1973 novel by Azerbaijani author Kurban. The novel is about a Muslim boy, Ali, and a Georgian princess, Nino whose love story ended tragically due to the invasion of Soviet Russia.

The two figures begin changing positions every night at 7 PM, They move towards each other until they meet in a brief embrace, before passing through and continuing on their path.
