11 of 11 people found the following review helpful By A. James Henderson on May 6, 2000
Format: Hardcover
.......I expected a cultural history of Georgia (in the Caucasus), I was delighted with this book when I received it. It turns out to be a beautifully photographed and produced catalog of an exhibition that was to have been shown at three museums in the USA in 1999 and/or 2000. Sadly for the organizers, for the Georgian government, and for us, the exhibition of these exceptional and unique objects was postponed at the 11th hour, evidently as the result of political differences against letting these treasures out of the country.
The catalog shows 165 objects made over a span of 8000 years, from late Neolithic stone and pottery pieces, early bronze age metal figures of animals, jewelry and goblets, through the 20th century. Objects from the most recent millennium include church icons, enamels, textiles with dense embroidery, brocading and jewels, manuscripts and paintings.
Half of the catalog features 23 scholarly essays and other introductions to the exhibition. These present a broad overview and perspective on Georgian history and culture, characterized as a geographical crossroad from all points of the compass for movement of peoples, trade and ideas (and possibly the origin of winemaking and early metal crafts). The essay titles are shown in the Table of Contents in the book listing by
The catalog provokes one to dream of seeing the exhibition whenever the political environment in Georgia makes this possible, and of seeing and learning more about Georgia in the home setting of these treasures.
