Intentio tua grata et accepta est creatori, sed opera that non aunt accepta... (from Latin - the Creator cares about your intentions, but not your deeds!) "Khazar dictionary" Milorad Pavich
The work is based on the novel-lexicon of the 20th century Serbian writer Milorad Pavic. The painting depicts the fictional Khazar princess Ateh, the patroness of the people who disappeared from the face of the earth, the founder of the Khazar religious community "dream catchers". The Balkans, the waters of the Danube, the extinguished kosts in the Carpathian mountains, wars of religion, ethnic group, exotic birds and fish from dreams all intertwine in the novel and are reflected in the work presented.
