In the Slavic tradition, there is a rite of feeding birds as a sign of worship, making a sacrifice to the Sun. It is believed that pigeons beg for dead people: when they peck bread or grain, then this is bowing for the deceased, there is a cleansing from sins, therefore, the more pigeons, the more bows. The work was done in tribute to the memory of Anna Andreevna Akhmatova and Nikolai Gumilyov, who was shot in the early 20th century.

As a texture fan, every artwork is an invention, i make some new graphic experiments and even I don't know what the result will be. So my artworks cannot be copied and repeated even by me.
