Georgia is the country of remarkable history and culture. The country is at the crossroads of Europe and Asia though Georgian culture has preserved its traditions and original style. Christianity was introduces in Georgia in the 1st century. According to tradition, holy Apostles Andrew, Matthias and Simon the Zealot (Canaanite) taught the Gospel in Georgia in 1st century. Officially, Chritianity was declated as a state religion by King Mirian in 337. From the 11th to the 13th century, Georgia experienced its “Golden Age of cultural, political and military ascendancy”. The reign of Queen Tamar represented the peak of Georgia's might in the whole history of the nation. Georgian murals, icons and closonné enamel artworks are preserved in churches, monasteries and various museums and regarded by experts as a unique and highly impressive masterpieces.

Georgian art has evolved for millennia. The unique geographical location of Georgia has brought travelers, merchants, missionaries and conquerors of all kinds and creeds, and defined the country's cultural and artistic environment throughout its history. Georgian art tradition has thus experienced influences from Roman, Byzantine and oriental art throughout antiquity. It has further grown within the framework of Christian ecclesiastical and middle-eastern art of the Middle Ages, and ultimately it has evolved in the context of European art from the 19th century onwards.

Modern Georgian iconography is characterized by the revival of clasical traditions.
