The picture "Giorgoba in Bolnisi" by the renowned Georgian artist Niko Pirosmani was temporarily removed from the Georgian National Museum to the residence of Mikheil Saakashvili, the President of Georgia, RIA Novosti reports, alluding to the Ministry of Culture of Georgia press service.


On Thursday Georgian mass media spread information that Saakashvili allegedly ordered his guards to steal Pirosmani's canvas to decorate his home.

According to the press service, the picture will remain in presidential residence in Avlabari for three months. The necessity for temporary replacement appeared because of repair works in Simon Janashia Museum of Georgia; all legal issues are respected.

Temporary placing canvas of famous artists in official residences of Presidents is a global practice, the Ministry of Culture press service adds.
