Anna Dziapshipa, a true friend, great photographer and organiser through SAKDOC in Tbilisi, in preparation for a film, took me for a tour down to Old Tbilisi as I wanted to see the monument of Parajanov – see previous post. I was inspired by a photo of Audrius Stonys in front of the sculpture and asked Anna to do one for me. She did.
The sculpture is based on a photo that Yuri Mechitov took of the director and the artist who did it is Prasto =
