These trees, withstanding the test of time, eventually succumbed to natural phenomena, including the rare and powerful strikes of lightning. It has been a long-held belief since ancient times that a tree struck by lightning is sanctified, having been marked by Zeus himself, the God of the sky, thunder, and lightning, sovereign of the world. Such trees have been venerated for centuries, believed to grant strength and health to those who revere them.

This collection carries an invisible energy, a certain aura emitted from the master's works. Notably, these trees bore witness to the historical events of 1812 involving Napoleon Bonaparte. The trees from which these pieces are crafted were the silent observers of these significant moments in history. To touch these trees is to connect with history itself.

As Eleanor Roosevelt eloquently stated, "THE ONLY THINGS WORTH ADMIRING ARE THOSE THAT ARE ADMIRED WITHOUT KNOWING WHY." This collection encapsulates this sentiment, inviting awe and wonder at the convergence of nature, history, and artistic mastery.

Bullfighting
Wild Herd
A wild natural force, a living stream, the power of eternal movement - these are the associations evoked by the sculptural composition 'Wild Herd.' The artist's creative imagination transformed a fragment of a wooden trunk, horse figurines found at a flea market, and natural gilded coral into a full-fledged prairie, a distant desert land where graceful wild horses reign. Should one attempt to tame them, or is it better to leave the laws of nature untouched?

The sculpture is made from a weathered fracture of a two-hundred-year-old oak branch. The surface is treated with wax and gilding. It features coral, pieces of antique Italian stained glass, as well as candles and chrome-plated horse figurines.

The sculpture "Paradise Bird" is a stunning creation, utilizing a cross-section of a dry, centuries-old oak tree with a whimsical shape. Suspended on a nearly invisible line is a delicate, transparent blue figurine of a hummingbird, poised as if frozen in mid-air. The figurine gently rotates, giving the illusion of the bird's graceful, hovering movement.

This artwork captures the ethereal beauty and miraculous agility of the hummingbird, often associated with joy and the beauty of nature. The choice of a transparent blue color adds an element of serenity and lightness, enhancing the feeling of a bird in flight.

The base, being a piece of ancient oak, brings a sense of timelessness and stability to the composition, contrasting with the ethereal and fleeting nature of the bird. This juxtaposition invites contemplation on the harmony between the enduring and the ephemeral in nature.

The sculpture "Embrace of Zeus" stands as a powerful testament to the ancient Greek god of the sky, lightning, and thunder. Zeus, revered as the king of all gods, is a central figure in Greek mythology, surrounded by numerous legends.

For centuries, such trees have been worshipped for their supposed ability to bestow strength and health. This work of art emanates an unseen energy, a testament to its divine connection.

This formidable piece is crafted from the base of a 300-year-old dry oak tree, once felled by lightning. The interior bears the scars of the lightning strike, a burnt surface that adds to its mystique. Adorned with candles and gilding, the artwork radiates a sense of ancient power and reverence. The sculpture is supported by a base made of Siberian larch, enhancing its stability and adding a touch of rugged beauty.
