On September 30 2018, during the annual harvesting ceremony, the founders of the company "Château Mukhrani", Mr. Mamuka Khazaradze and Mr. Badri Japaridze festively presented an antique bronze statuette, unique in itself, uncovered in Akhalgori, to the General Director of the Georgian national Museum  Prof. David Lordkipanidze.

The indicated figure has been studied in the laboratory of the Georgian National Museum's Restoration - Conservation Scientific Institute. The research concludes that the statue is made of a melting pot prepared with a copper-zinc alloy. Such alloys are precisely to be found in Classical Antiquity.
