Description of the artwork «Legend of Kurgan. Soldiers.»
The triptych is devoted to a Turkic legend of the tsarevna Naziye and the khan Kadyr. There lives in Zauralie such legend. Very long time ago, in immemorial times, the rich khan Kadyr owned the earth on coast of Tobol. There was at it the only daughter, the beauty Naziya. Slowly, as silent Tobol, years passed. Fires smoked in steppes. The girl missed in carpet tents. Once brought the light-haired handsome captive into Kadyr's camp. It was independent and proud, and the tsarevna Naziya fell in love with it with all the heart. The father decided to execute the captive, but Naziya begged: "I ask, leave it life, and me happiness! It came it not for a razor, not in order that to plunder someone. As the brother came to work on the immense earth Siberian.". The severe khan solved differently. He ordered to execute both. Over a grave the huge hill – Tsaryov Kurgan was filled. Nearby – the barrow is less.
