For those who read the book about Ali and Nino or watched the movie based on the same book, seeing these moving sculptures would be a nice impression for sure.

Pictures and videos do not reflect the deep sentimentalism of the statues. One must really see it. The statues move slowly approaching and hugging each other, then they move apart in counter directions. One should see Nino leaning her head on Ali's shoulder.

We saw it at night, when it is more impressive., Being familiar with the story and the book recounting the search for the real Kourban Said, it was even more special.

It’s a beautiful piece of art, and its back story is just moving. Best to come on clear sky so you can stay and observe closely and fully. Summer is most recommended from what I’ve heard. Cause we came on a wet autumn day, with...More

The statue is much more impressive at night when lit up and then it moves constantly. I didn't stop during the day, only drove by several times.
