Sirin and Alkonost. Song of Joy and Sadness.

Artist: Ninel Senatorova


8 x 8" / The Alkonost and Sirin are legendary woman-headed birds in Slavic folklore. Alkonost makes amazingly beautiful sounds, and those who hear these sounds forget everything they know and want nothing more ever again. According to folk tales, at the morning of the Apple Feast of the Saviour day, Sirin flies into the apple orchard and cries sadly. In the afternoon, the Alkonost flies to this place, beginning to rejoice and laugh.
