People of Georgia

These people, from my archives, are all memorialised, long gone. From the top:

Kazbegi (Kazbek), writer, at his village just south of the Russian border
King David Aghmashenebeli (the Builder), who united Georgia for the first time, in Kutaisi
Unidentified figure from a church wall, Mtskheta
St Nino, who brought Christianity to Georgia in the early 4th century as a slave woman from Cappadocia, Turkey, from from the huge bell at Sveti-Tskhoveli Cathedral, Mtskheta
Stalin, Telavi (I found him like that; the bird's nest was there already!)
