The well-known Hollywood actor, Ashton Kutcher, made a comment about one of Georgia’s landmarks , the statue of Ali and Nino. ‘This truly is moving,” wrote Kutcher on his Facebook page about the animated statue that was installed in the coastal city of Batumi in 2011.
Ali and Nino was damaged a few months ago, during its relocation. Namely, Nino’s statue fell from the crane. However, Batumi’s trademark was quickly restored and installed at a new place, close to the observation wheel, where the heavy storms will not threaten it.
This 8-meter-tall moving monument, which symbolizes unending love and unity between two nations, has become one of the city's symbols. It was made by a Georgian artist and sculptor Tamar Kvesitadze, modeled after two main characters of Azerbaijani writer Kurban Said's novel of the same name. Many say that it also symbolizes a connection between Europe and Asia.
