Almost in all the acknowledged classifications of art fine arts, used in its broader I sense, includes all the spheres of artistic activity, in which this or that form of expression is resorted to. i.e. music, theatre, choreography and others. But we would like to speak about fine Arts in its narrower sense, which is more exactly expressed by the term "graphic arts" trying to give a historical-chronological survey of the main tendencies in the development of Georgian painting, drawing and sculpture.

Concord Travel accompanies and assists you to choose the best souvenirs, reminding your visit to Georgia. 

Cloisonne Enamel
The art of cloisonne enamel is a very popular form of ornamentation in Georgia. Those women who can afford handmade enamel pieces – they may have one big ring, a pendant or a pair of earrings – wear them with pride, regardless of their age or taste. This particular attitude of Georgians to this kind of enamel dates back centuries, as Georgia is presumed to be one of the motherlands of cloisonne culture. Enamel is one of the oldest art forms in Eastern culture and one of its forms was developed in ancient Egypt. From the 8th century onward it can be found in China, while the 10th-12th centuries was considered the golden era of cloisonne in the Byzantine Empire.

It isn’t known exactly where it originated but cloisonne must date back to the 7th century and was probably born in the Eastern Christian countries. The first very compositional and rich cloisonne emerged in Georgia in the 8th century. Museum of Fine Arts has one of the richest collections containing over 200 samples of cloisonne. "Khakhulis Karedi" (10-11th centuries).

The Georgian samples of cloisonne are distinguished with full freedom. The blossoming era for the cloisonne in Georgia was in X-XII centuries. There is a significant change in its techniques. The cloisonne implies a very complicated process. It is made with the pure gold or with the unity of gold and silver called "electron", on which the gold layers are being fixed. Afterwards, inside its contours the enamel is mounded. It is connected with a very scrupulous work.

Georgian Carpets
Would you like to get in original and exotics world? Georgia, and it's capital Tbilisi, historically always was the route of Euro-Asia, because exactly here, ran caravan road from Europe to Asia. This is the reason, that Tbilisi becomes Caucasian market center.

Once, on this place, you could meet European and Asian unique cultural masterpieces, valuable works of Iranian, Turkish, Indian, Chinese, Central Asian and Caucasian handmade carpets, kilims, embroideries, mafrashes, Khourdjins (saddlebags) and etc.

Since ancient times, in Caucasia there was carpet and kilim weaving tradition, for sheep raising was widely developed. Exactly of this animals wool were weaved carpets, kilims, clothes and other everyday things. In ornaments and symbols of those works, Caucasian nation's (Georgian, Armenian, Azerbaijanian, Dagestanian, Chechenian ...) history, religion and old traditions were reflected.

Nowadays, Caucasian carpets are on every continents, but it's important to notice that in its natural form, without any falsification, and what is more important at very real and available prices, you can meet important at very real and available prices, you can meet them in its homeland, Caucasia, namely in Tbilisi.

Felt is a non-woven cloth that is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers. The fibers form the structure of the fabric. While some types of felt are very soft, some are tough enough to form construction materials. Felt can be of any color, and made into any shape or size. Felt is the oldest form of fabric known to humankind. It predates weaving and knitting.

The "Silk Roads" have played an important role in cultural exchange and the establishment of economic relations between East and West. It is likely that with the help of ETN's "Silk Route" program cultural contacts within the textile industry will be established. Although it has always been part of European culture. Georgia has been isolated from Europe for centuries as a result of political conditions. Every opportunity for displaying Georgian culture or treasures is therefore most welcome to us.

Georgia established trade relations with the Far East early. The northern part of the "Silk Route" crossed its territory. The importance of the Egrisi towns to this traffic was well-known in the early Hellenistic period and also later in tile 5th - 6th centuries.

Tiny fragments of silk fabric have been found in Georgian burial grounds of the 2nd - 4th centuries. As they have not been studied from the point of view of weaving technique, it is difficult to determine their origin. It is interesting to note that in Georgia. on the banks of the river Mtkvari and elsewhere, certain endemic species of mulberry trees were wide-spread. All this leads one to believe that Georgia has long been acquainted with silk. According to legend, silk culture was introduced to Georgia from India and is connected with the 5th century Georgian King Vakhtang Gorgasali.
