Favorite thing: At the feet of Goris Tsikhe, on a shelf stand an amazing assembly. Seven wounded Middle-Ages warrior, twice man size, sit on rocks. They are actually VERY wounded : broken chests , at least missing hands or arms,! One of them has lost both arms anf half of his skull. Another one has lost both arms, both legs and his head. That certainly refers to a historical event in the Middle Ages but have not found any clue about it.
Gori beeing strategically situated at a major crossroad has been repeatedly invaded but none of the invasions and following sack of the town seem more blooddy than the others. Is that an allegorical memorial to all invasions of Gori ? May be! If anybody has a clue, I would be glad to learn!
