On Kutaisi Boulevard

This image is not accompanied by any text. However, its caption and the date of publication provide some context. In 1908, when this issue of Eshmakis Matraxi was published, a public celebration of the 50-year career of Akaki Tsereteli took place on Kutaisi Boulevard in Tbilisi.

For this reason, we may assume that the person depicted in this caricature is Akaki Tsereteli. However, the meaning of the felled trees and the ax has yet to be established.
