Lyssa's uploading paintings by Vsevolod Ivanov in the "Heroic and Mythical" thread impressed me and reminded me of Bilibin's paintings.

From quite a young age I had an emotional yearning, which I could have only described as religious, to see paintings like these, with the theme of Hyperborean/Elvish races, etc.

It often bothered me that I could not find satisfaction in what a lot of "fantasy" art gave, because I wanted a myth that told me where I came from, or what my destiny was. This stuff comes close, for reasons I am unable to articulate within the domain of bourgeois respectability.

"King of the Sun" ( "of Sun-King "), graphics, digital paintings.

The image is reconstructed from the known work Afanasyeva, who, in turn, relied mostly on the South Slavic material (mainly, I think, on the puzzle)

Sun surround: -
Solntseva Mother
Two Dawns - morning and evening,
and the bald guy - Month.
Also here we see the sun three horse
seven judges - planets,
seven tailed star - comets,
and twelve of the Sun Kingdoms.

"Swimming Heaven" ( "Sky Sailing"), graphics, digital coloring

. One of those rare occasions when the image completely in the fullness of its meaning - neither add nor subtract
everything in place, everything is clear, everything as it should be ...
If I were a pagan, it was quite possible to use this image in the religious order: - ) as used herein, artistic acceptance recalls here the mine, but in the sense - already just this .

"Mother - low, father - high" ( "Mother is at the bottom, Father is on top"), graphics, digital coloring.

As an experiment - no subtext and hidden meaning.
All - is obvious. Purely on the symbols.
Only three colors, only two symbols.
Struggling restrained so as not to complicate further.
It is clear in fact that is drawn?


"In Slavic mythology, also known motif of the sacred marriage of heaven and earth Matrimony give birth incarnation of the nature mentioned in the mysteries of the earth and the sky like:." Mother - low, father - high "(Russ.)," High tyatka flat nurse "(Polish: ...., Serbia) in the East Slavic folklore is extremely common archaic appeal to the earth and the sky, as a father and mother, including, in proverbs, charms and oaths Perceptions of great parents survived the following spell-formula: "You, Heaven - !. father, you earth - mother, "So, when collecting herbs on Ivan Kupala said:" Earth mother, bless me with grass brother, and grass me mother "Special verdict pronounced in the collection of herbs for the treatment of damage," father-sky! !. the earth mother, bless her fetus vomit .. "[5, p.254] to maintain health herb mugwort plaited in braids and put them" under Ivanov dew "with the sentence:" mother earth, father of heaven, let your slaves from this herb's health! "[5, S.255]. Interestingly, the ancient formula of" Earth mother, the sky father "used in plots of more recent origin, such as conspiracies" to approach. " This type of plots used for the location of someone (government, bosses, judges, etc.) in their favor [9, S.305]. Formula is often used in the final part of the conspiracy: "To those words of heaven and earth - the key and the lock," as if the inviolability of fastening Pronounced words [9, p.272]. The semantic load of this phrase reflects ancient notions of continuity due grand parents, their original unity. "... The mythical fiction, that heaven and earth were the father and mother of all that exists in the world, naturally gave rise to the legend that in ancient times they were connected, and only later were separated ..." [12, p.94].
...
In particular, LM Boutkevitch writes: "... The sky-circle ... acts as a creator god, the expression of the Absolute, while land-square - soluble derivative, created with the mediation of the cross, which is consistent with the concept of antiquity, reflected in numerous myths" [1, C.21 ].
...
When considering the quantitative ratio of heaven and earth, it becomes apparent prevailing role of the earth image. In the words of Tylor, "... the idea of ​​the earth as a mother is much simpler and clearer, and no doubt, therefore much more common than the idea of ​​heaven as a father" [12, S. 95].
... The combination of elements enshrined in the mythological tradition is very particular way. The sky, the air is associated with fire and light, manifest themselves in the luminosity, whiteness, brightness. LM Boutkevitch mentions in this context the word V.I.Ravdonikas: "The concept of" holiness "and, together with the" purity "," whiteness "in the primitive consciousness is linked, as shown by the linguistic research Marr, with the" sky "..." [1, P.20]. Light (cf .: Russ. "All white light"), brightness, motility, "groznost" creative activity, power, and strength are qualities that reflect the "machismo" of the sky. The land, in turn, is inextricably linked with the element of water, with moisture. "Women" is expressed in the beginning of the land opposite "heavenly" qualities - passivity, submission and weakness in relation to the sky, softness and pliability, peace, darkness and humidity. In this opposition of earth and sky as the men and women evident symbolism of the world of duality, that OA Voronina said: "biological sexual differentiation is represented and embodied in the culture through symbols of masculine and feminine" [10, P.23].
Representations of the sky-light and soil-moisture widespread in the Slavic and especially Russian, folklore, particularly in the form of formulas, "the father-and-white light" and "mother-land of cheese" "

O.G.Radchenko "The duality give birth to images in Slavic mythology"

"Spring 2015" ( "The Spring 2015"), graphic, black and red pens.
