oto-new-collage-1100, originally uploaded by grijsz.

In the center is shown Duru Khurtsilava, who lived in Zugdidi (Megrelia) and got problems with dictatorship in former Soviet Georgia, came up in prison. He was so strong, that smashed the door of his prison cell and brought it to the director of the Prison. He managed to escape several times as well. He later got killed for unknown reasons (maybe it was organized) in prison. Later was written a book about him and in about 1988/89 a fim "Duru".

Collage, size 56 x 42 cm, 2008
