riony valley sculpture
Soil from the riverbank of Rioni valley, Lechkhumi. This place has become one of resistance to environmental damage over the last few years. Construction has begun on a new hydroelectric dam, a project which has already affected the lives of the people in this valley. Some have moved out of their homes already where their villages will be flooded and others worry about the impact of the water on agriculture.
