Good Defeats Evil

Artwork by Zurab Tsereteli

Born on January 4, 1934, in the Republic of Georgia in the former Soviet Union, this gifted man has risen above his peers and created works of art that remain segregated from the socialist realism style preferred by his counterparts. The ancient art of enameling, today almost a lost art form, was refined in Zurab Tsereteli’s homeland, the Republic of Georgia.

Included in the Museum’s collection are three types of vivid enamels (see photo) modeled after the Good Defeats Evil Sculpture, created by Tsereteli to commemorate the historic signing of the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty. The original 39 foot high, 40 ton monumental bronze sculpture, Good Defeats Evil, was donated to the United Nations by the Soviet Union. The enamels measure sixty and twenty centimeters in diameter and are finished on a copper base.

The INF Treaty Missile Commemorative incorporates actual shards of Soviet SS-20 and US Pershing-2 missiles together with a bronze medallion that measures 7 1/2 inches in diameter. The medallion is encircled by olive branches, immediately recognizable symbols of peace. This beautiful focal piece measures 8 3/4 by 8 1/2 inches, and rests on a fossilized limestone base that is 8 3/4 by 11/2 by 1-1/2 inches.

In addition to maintaining one copy of each of these beautiful pieces of collectible art for The Cold War Museum's permanent collection, the Museum is able to order additional pieces upon request. Please contact The Cold War Museum for more information.
