Zurab Tsereteli was born in Tbilisi on January 4th, 1934. The monumentality is the word that best describes Zurab Tsereteli’s activity: all of it is monumental – his sculptures, paintings and drawings. The monumentality in this context means grandeur, brilliance in the best sense of the word - the significant or even sacred in its human dimension that imparts a mythical feeling to his works of art.
