The thematic top of relief series were two more art works: “Escape” and “Different Vision”. They both were outcome of hard and intensive work as on the concept, so on the material.
The relief “Alien” belongs to the same “cultural” art series. But it refers to different, more social distinctions between nations, people. In spite of jellyfish and that ambiguous creature live in one space, in water, we know jellyfish much better. And there are still many unidentified creatures in the underwater world.
The second attempt to the Relief Series were also two works – Baltic & Mediterranean Sea. As on the first two works, the jellyfish on these also symbolize civilizations, nations and cultures, but as the names refer, we talk about another parts of the world.

ზურაბ (ბერო) ბეროზაშვილმა ისწავლა ბერლინის და პოტსდამის უნივერსიტეტებში, მანამდე თბილისის სამხატვრო აკადემია დაამთავრა. მოგვიანებით ბერლინის ხელოვნების აკადემიის სრული კურსი გაიარა, არის მაგისტრი. ხელოვნების სხვადასხვა მედიუმს-მასალას იყენებს. “უხილავი ფარდის” სტუმართან გადაცემის ავტორი, ოქროპირ რუხაძე, საუბრობს იმაზე, უნდა დაეხმაროს თუ არა ხელოვანი ნამუშევრის გაგებაში მნახველს, არის თუ არა ხელოვნების ყველა ჟანრი „თამაში“… საუბარი დავიწყეთ მნახველზე ხელოვნების ზემოქმედების პროცესის განხილვის მცდელობით: ნამუშევარს როცა ვუყურებ, მის ზეგავლენას განვიცდი და თუ მოვშორდი, მავიწყდება.
Zurab Bero used to work only on sculptures before. But as he has mentioned in his interviews many times, he always tries new materials as well as mediums. So came in 2009 new type in his Art – reliefs created from epoxy resin. The first artpieces were Baltic Sea and Caspian Sea, created almost simultaneously. The whole background of both artworks are covered with mentioned material that gives the feel of deep water. It seems like a real water with glance, depth and mystery, though this is oil material. As a relief on those patterns are designed two different kind of jellyfish – one on each art piece.
Terra Nova was a group show, held in the end of 2009 in the Art Gallery Wedding (Galerie Wedding), Berlin. “Terra” means the planet Earth, “Nova” – new. It was a delightful exhibition dedicated to the four elements water, fire, air and earth. Elements that determine our lives and have vital importance for us.
In 2008 because of serious corrosion damages was decided to change the crone of Berliner Dom (Eng. Berlin Cathedral) cupola, which was holding the main cross of the cathedral. The crone was covered with gilded copper sheets. On the basis of circumstance that it was very important part of cathedral, as historically, so religiously and culturally, they decided to use that material for also cultural aims.
Interesting, how can be turtle feathered or how can it be able to fly.
