Georgian Painting

Georgian mural painting reached great heights during the flowering of arts in the Middle Ages. National schools of a unique character developed through discovery and celebration of Georgian hagiography as well as through cultural contacts with neighbouring countries.

Georgian architecture

Georgia has a magnificent 1,300-year tradition of architecture, which is one of the most significant expressions of the nation’s artistic vision and heritage. The famous cupola structures that dominate Georgian ecclesiastic architecture can be traced to domestic dwellings.

Cave Paintings

consists of engraved or painted works on open air rocks or on the floors, walls and ceilings of caves, some of them in deep and almost inaccessible crannies. They were created during the Upper Palaeolithic period (40,000 to 10,000 BC), and the best were done by what we call the Magdalenians (from the name of a site), peoples who flourished in Europe from 18,000 to 10,000 BC. Such works have  [ Read More ]

From a cave in southwestern Germany, archaeologists have unearthed the oldest known piece of figurative art. More than an ancient artistic impulse, it may signify a profound change in modern human brains. Carved from ivory and depicting a woman with exaggerated sexual features, the pinkie-sized sculpture is 36,000 years old, or about 5,000 years older than the next-earliest piece of figurative art. Though 77,000-year-old carvings have been found in South  [ Read More ]
