Absolutely magnificent Lew!!!Thank you so much for posting this amazing, and inspiring dance.
I always think of the swords of the Khevsurs, which have been mentioned only occasionally here, as well as the great example of the Khevsur buckler which Yannis has posted on earlier threads. I first heard of the Khevsurs when reading Halliburton's 1930's adventure narrative, "Seven League Boots" in which he visited the remote regions of these anachronistic warriors high in the Caucusus. There are few words to describe the spirit of the Georgian people, beautifully shown here in this performance!

All the best,
Jim
