Drawing is inspired by the popular prints of XVII-XVIII centuries.
Popular print is a special genre of the decorative arts with the distinctive inherent figurativeness. It represents a folkloristic picture, a very special kind of the graphic art characterized by simplicity and laconism.
The fable beings - Lion, Unicorn and Sirin, whose images can be often seen on the folk art items – come out from the wood, the backstage, as if from the remote past. Arriving from the East, the images of these mythical animals caught the special fancy of folk artists. Lion symbolized strength and power, Unicorn - fight against evil, Sirin - wellbeing.
Carved pattern of the window casing served as a prototype for creating the ornament framing the scene.
