    Leaning On The Lamppost!
    This is one statue I really loved and was so glad I found it as I certainly was looking in the wrong place. It is quirky but so wonderfully designed. I stood on the ladder behind him for a photo snap and it looked really cool as the background is also very interesting. Have fun!

    Unique, interesting Monument
    Located near the Tourist Information Office (selling tickets for the Tour Buses), the statue is hard to ignore. I wondered the significance of this monument. Perhaps this was relevant in the old days when there was no electricity. and lamps had to be manually lighted every night.

    Fun Statue
    This is one of many statues scattered around the city. I didn't know about it when I saw it and it took me a but to figure out it was commemorating gas lamplighters. I like walking around a city and seeing different sculptures like this. I recommend wandering around Tbilisi and seeing which ones you find.

One of several sculptures around the city. This one is reminiscent of the Gas Light Era when all the street light had to bit lit by hand.

This is a quaint statue of a lamplighter. It is close to the old city.
There are many fun statues around the city to find.

Fits the atmosphere around it a lot. I tried to find a story behind it from the official source but couldn't. There are many different stories and tour guides seem to come up with their own stories. I didn't find similar stories from the sculptor himself - Irakli Tsuladze. However, it definitely represents a piece of history of a profession Lamplighter, people who brought light to Tbilisi

When you hear the story of the lamplighter and why a Muslim was chosen for the job, you will giggle (Georgians tended to enjoy chacha too much). There are several other charming statue within a few meters. Enjoy before the clock tower show.

A beautiful bronze statue, one of the most beautiful of the many bronze statues that are scattered on the streets of Tablissi.
Dedicated to all the gas Lamplighters that made sure to illuminate the city's streets and unfortunately disappeared along with the disappearance of the gas lanterns. It is highly recommended to look for this beautiful sculpture, even for Photo Op only.

This is but a piece of street art; on the other hand, it enhances this walkway and is encountered soon after the puppet theatre.

to remind people of what these people did. Cute pointy shoes were won. Well sculptured and a reminder of the past.
