Sacred song of Altai


Tempera on canvas. 2000. 110 х 125 cm

The holy Bay-terek of Altai people is the poplar tree standing in the center of the world with his roots in underground world (Aibystan), his body in terrestrial world and branches in empyreal world (Yuch-Kurbustan).
The image of the Bay-terek and all what surrounds him is described in much details in the book "Maadai Kara". In this painting i tried to create the image as close as possible to the description.
