“Dance of Shaman”

танец шамана

The author’s bronze sculpture “Dance of Shaman” is a journey of the soul, in a state of trance and chanting. His robe flutters in the wind, resembling bird’s plumage. According to mythology, shamanism appeared simultaneously with the creation of the world, and the first shaman was the son of a heavenly God, who descended to Earth in the image of an eagle and created a shaman there. Among the fascinating distances of Lake Baikal, on the island of Olkhon – in the stronghold of shamanism, merging with nature, the shaman communicates with the spirits. The burning branches of juniper, their pleasant aroma, the muffled sounds of the drum fly away and attract the spirits.
