Decoration, arisen from the designer thinking is a context that enables achieving the semantic foundations dominating the creation and organization of them through reading it. The types and styles of church decoration are capable of exhibiting the philosophy, ideology and approach which govern it.
The decoration of churches in Georgia bearing different approaches; with an obvious alteration in patterns comparing to the those of ancient time, these decoration in Georgia today are faced with a commodity and showing approach displaying the icons of saints which can be found in the form of additional frames.
The decorations represent several features: 1) no communication is appeared with the former patterns neither are complementary to them but combined horizontally with an independent identity; 2) Considering that the additional frame is capable of accepting the low and high amount without any need to define the predetermined level, has found a temporary way; 3) The frames are displayed as individual museum objects unrelated to the context; 4) Are not celestial and bring no aspect of greatness.
In addition to this politic, the way of managing the church adds a demonstrating aspect to it. The existence of book stores and cultural products and the lack of a dedicated space for worship increase the exhibition mode of the church. The local people are confined to perform the rituals such as the consecration of the frames, lighting the candles and doing baptism as there is no space in the church for their privacy. The demonstrating and commodity approach governing the churches today declares the content of government policy in relation to religion and its role in society today. In other words, in Georgian politics, the church management with media functions and something objective to attract the audience has converted the spiritual atmosphere of the church into an exhibition mode.
