Svaneti Project Svanetian Towers and Svanetian High Art History and Hypothesis

Nika Vacheishvili, Gigi Tevzadze

Abstract


Tower complexes, a remarkable number of churches, traces of advanced medieval structural practices and craftsmanship, examples of high art preserved in the Mestia Museum – all these bear evidence to the state project implemented over three centuries (11th-13th) in Svaneti and aimed at turning the province into a military, religious, cultural and technological centre of the Caucasus.
