“STATUE OF LOVE” IN BATUMI

Submitted by: Essen 4 months ago in Lifestyle Misc Weird



A 7 meter steel sculpture of a man and a woman stands on the seashore boulevard of Batumi (Georgian: ბათუმი) on the Black Sea coast of Georgia. Created by Georgian artist Tamar Kvesitadze (Georgian: თამარ კვესიტაძე), the figures move toward each other and merge into one piece every 10 minutes.
The Statue is inspired by a caucasian story similar to Romeo and Juliet.

 I don't know if the artist is male or female but imagine if the artist named Tamar Kvesitadze, used his or her Ingenuity to help his or her community in some way, other than making this wasteful, armless, useless art.  I just don't see the productivity with art.

I guess a man with no arms who finds a woman with no arms; I feel they've discovered their soulmate

Beaverfever Statue based on story similar to Shakespear's Romeo & Juliet.  Othello is another work of Shakespear.  Quote is from Othello.  Statue combines to create beast with two backs, euphemism for fucking.  ! Illuminati.  Why?  Because I am bored.com. 

Need a new hobby.

melcervini I get that you are trying to make a joke, and that I should probably lighten up a little, but it's comments like this that depress me.  

I can't say for sure, but from what I've seen of your previous comments (this one included) you are among the population who HATES "political correctness."  Am I right?  If so, may I ask what it is about it that is so abhorrent to you?  

After all, what is political correctness?  Is it truly the drain on society that people think it is, or is it simply courteousness, empathy, or maybe even the simple acknowledgement that other people are not exactly like ourselves?  Is it so horrible to say "happy holidays" instead of "merry christmas?"  Is it so hard to accept that some people may be confused about their sexuality and/or gender identity that you must speak up and make comments like this?  Whatever happened to empathy, or courteousness?  

Have you ever considered what those people who have comments like this pointed at them feel like when that happens?  I guess you had better hope this epidemic of rudeness and intolerance is cleared up before you become someone who could benefit from simple courtesy or even empathy.

skeeter01 I dont mind being politically correct about some things, its when someone is attacked either verbally or physically for NOT being PC that i have a problem and I WILL mock you for it.  i.e. there are TWO genders, male and female.  If a man comes into my store and is dressed as a woman I will refer to him as "her/ma'am/she" because that's how they're presenting themselves and it doesn't cause me ONE bit of pain/inconvenience to do so.  But if I call you sir when you look like a sir, and you're not?  sorry.. not my fucking problem to try and guess wtf you think you are.

melcervini maybe I misunderstood this whole thing from the get go, but let me see if I can clarify things.

In your reply to me, it sounded like you were venting about how you dislike it when people demand you be PC, even if it's their own fault that you can't tell what gender they are.  I figured that was your reason for making your original comment about the statues having gender issues... which I took to be poking fun at at people who have gender issues.

Look, I'm willing to admit that I'm probably being way too sensitive right now.  Suffice it to say that seeing people being picked on for things that aren't necessarily their fault is really striking a nerve with me on a personal level.

skeeter01 My original comment was poking fun at the people that shriek, cry, wail, moan, gnash their teeth, and demand safe spaces/nay-sayers' silence if you DARE mis-gender someone.  NOT the people being mis-gendered.  HOWEVER COMMA... dont get snowflake with me if someone says "Ma'am, or Sir" to you and its not obvious either way.

Its cool.  We have our topics we get fired up over. :)

skeeter01 Political correctness is one person or group telling another person or group what they shouldn't say. Even if what is said is rude, crude and socially unacceptable the first amendment protects that right to say it. That being said, my Mom raised me to be polite in polite company. Being raised in NYC and a retired Coastie, I can also go as low as I need to.

skeeter01 I'm really liberal and politically correct. And I usually disagree with mel, but I up-voted this because I thought it was funny.

Y'know. Funny.

Now, that is just weird. I can't make a guess, based just on this video, whether it would look weirder or less weird in person. An understanding of art requires presence. Even then, it's always unlikely that an observer can understand it in the same way that the artist does. Our understanding is based on the life experience we bring to the viewing.
