Georgian wrestling Chidaoba
08 December, 2018
Georgian Wrestling (Chidaoba) has been added to the List of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity on the 29th of November. Wrestling is the ancient type of sport, which is widespread in Georgia. The wrestling scene on the Alaverdi wall represents it as one of the oldest types of sports practiced in Georgia. The faces of the characters of the scene, their clothes and manners of their movement indicate the traditional Georgian wrestling art. Religious festivals were accompanied by such competitions. Due to this fact, Georgian Wrestling is an expression of the identity of the Georgian nation.
