"The Energy from past"

Often, the influence of the environment on a person is very critical, and this influence changes our character, it changes our behavior.
In recent years, I have been working on pagan themes, and pre-Christian pagan traditions in Georgia: this is a huge and inexhaustible subject, and I feel its influence in today's life and religion very often.
The world of inexhaustible, unknowable, and fabulous arrangements captivated me years ago, and I tried to bring out the mysticism and mood in this work, which reflects my subjective attitude to that period and resonates emotionally.

The Energy of burn wood

Since ancient times Georgians had cultic trees. They worshiped threes, holy forests, stones and peaks of the mountains. In Georgia we have proven source of two oldest stages in the tree worship tradition: Sacral tree and sacral forest. Lots of rituals are connected with trees and these rituals are diverse: mother pillar, three of life, wishing tree, holy forest, “Chichilaki”, thunder stricken walnut tree and etc.
