An illustrated book considers activity of the Greeks from Ponto who in the 19th century in several phases came to settle in Georgia. Their activity was based on samples of architecture, mural painting, easel painting, or liturgical art. Nearly all corners of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th centuries Georgia bear significant traces of Greek craftsmen – stonemasons and iconographers. This book serves to expose a general picture of their work.
