Sculpture Falcon and Pheasant

Despite evidence of settlement in the area stretching back to the 4th century BC,
Georgians prefer the legend that King Vakhtang Gorgasali of Kartli founded Tbilisi in the 5th century.
 
The story runs that when the king was hunting, a pheasant fell into a hot sulphur spring and was conveniently cooked for dinner.
Another version has it that a wounded deer fell into the hot sulphur spring and was miraculously healed.
Either way, Tbilisi takes its name from the Georgian tbili (warm), and there seems little doubt that the magnificent hot springs, which still lure visitors today, attracted the king to the spot.
 
Now, in the same place is the sculpture as a point of reference of modern Tbilisi
