The Embassy of Georgia in Doha, in co-operation with Katara – Cultural Village, has jointly organised an exhibition by Georgian artist Mikheil Eristavi, marking the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Qatar and Georgia.
The ‘The Divine Horses’ exhibition, which runs until January 28 at Katara building 47 – Gallery 1, showcases 20 paintings and graphics. It includes rare pieces mostly presented from private collections and some specially created for the show.
Georgian ambassador Nikoloz Revazishvili and Katara general manager Prof Khalid bin Ibrahim al-Sulaiti led the inauguration of the exhibition. Ambassadors of various countries and representatives of the diplomatic corps, academia and art groups, as well as Georgian citizens residing in Qatar were present.
In a press statement, the embassy noted that the exhibition puts a spotlight on ‘the power and beauty of Arabian horses’ – one of the core symbols of the Arabian Peninsula – representing the main leading theme of Eristavi’s works.
