Kartlis Deda, Mother of Kartli, is a monument that has become a symbol of the city and is a figure of a woman in Georgian national dress. She symbolizes the Georgian national character: in her left hand she holds a bowl of wine to greet those who come as friends, and in her right hand is a sword for those who come as enemies.
