Thirst for Myths and Legends

Thirst for Myths and Legends


my name is: Olga Karpeisky

i'm sharing: Oil painting and the poem, both titled "Thirst for Myths and Legends". The poem is in Russian, but here is the brief translation: “It’s only a part of historical information that we receive from documents and artifacts about the real History… Our knowledge is insufficient like a glass, that is always half-full—half-empty…”

this was inspired by: Antiquities collection of the Getty Villa encouraging a deeper understanding of the ancient world and the thought that knowledge of history will always be incomplete.

to me, inspiration is: The feeling of wings behind and desire to create.
