Georgian monuments and statues

The Soviets loved a good monument, either of a significant person, or symbols promoting the socialist cause. Georgia, part of the Soviet Union for nearly seventy years, was full of them. Here are some of the more notable ones I came across on my travels, along with some more recent Georgian statues, including the huge Mother Georgia statue looking over Tbilisi.DSC06707 DSC07086 DSC07149 DSC07131 DSC07100 DSC07129 DSC07040 DSC07128 DSC07110 DSC06703 DSC08674 DSC06554 DSC06582 DSC06583 DSC08672 DSC08637 DSC07155 DSC08374 Kazbegi DSC08484 DSC08527 DSC08524
