About the art
In Sanskrit, the word "mara" means destroying. The roots of this word stretch to the Indo-European "mar / mor", associated with pestilence and epidemic. Taking the souls of the dead, Mara allowed them to be reborn.
Over time, they began to forget about it, and she was associated exclusively with death, bringing fear to the souls of people.
The moth is a talisman of immortality, rebirth and resurrection, the ability to transform, as this winged insect appears, transforming in a cocoon, from a caterpillar. The moth also symbolizes the ability to transform and beauty.
One of the symbolic meanings in the image of the skull is overcoming the fear of death. In many cultures, it has also become a symbol of vital energy, fortitude and physical nvulnerability. In my work, it is associated with death in the key of rebirth granted by Mara.
This artwork was a part of group show in my town. We named it «Bubbles of the Earth», what refers us to an expression from Shakespeare's tragedy "Macbeth" translated by Andrei Kroneberg (1844), which gained further popularity due to the fact that A. Blok titled the first section of the second vol. of his poems collection,which actually inspired us for the group show.
