Mustafa is a sculpture dealing with the remote location of Omalo. It just uses local resources. Form and material refer to the traditional architecture of the tower houses of the Greater Caucasus region. Since the sculpture reveals its construction, it seems more like a prop or some state in between - not anymore, not yet  – this is an allegoric understanding for a Georgian condition in general. We move the sculpture around, so it can interact with the surrounding world. Mustafa is the name of the horse, which really got attracted.
