A message from our predecessors
Artwork is inspired by the earliest evidence for writing scripts, that comes from the Balkans. Stone artefacts were inscribed with religious beliefs of the ancient Balkan populations. The proto-Balkan people produced texts whose central theme was the mystery of birth, death, and life-renewal. The symbols and images portrayed were impregnated with the richness of the Earth and were as cyclical as the Moon.
Such an ancient writing is found in Madara - the spiritual center of Bulgaria’s First Kingdom. Carved into a cliff 100-meters high, lies the unique representation of a knight on horseback defeating a lion. This unique monument, dated back to 705 A.D., is well known as the Madara Rider. It carries a secret message that only a few can unveil. Whatever your beliefs, the truth about the ancient Balkan monuments and writing symbols remains hidden to this day, the surrounding mystery continues.
