Wizard of Changes -- ©cdozo 2004 to 2015
From a New York Times article about Georgian youths running off to join in the fighting:

“The main legend of Georgia is that Georgians are warriors because they are subject to constant invasion,” said Anna Lagidze, an educational psychologist in Tbilisi. A legend going back a thousand years, she explained, is that the men went into battle with grapevines tied around their waists so that if they died, new grapes would spring up where they fell.
