THE MYTHS & LEGEND COLLECTION  – Here is Oleksii finest painting on  The Myths & Legends series, the painting captures the story of Gaia

Greek mythology is full of incredible deities who represented diverse parts of existence and had a lot of influence over the world. Gaia, or Gaea, was the divine personification of the Earth and the matriarch of all things in existence. Often referred to as the Earth goddess, but she was more than that. She was the Earth itself.

MADE IN JAPAN COLLECTION 

Our ancient experience confirms at every point that everything is linked together…, everything is inseparable

The Japanese wolf is worshipped in Japan and is particularly revered in Chichibu where many shrines pay tribute to the animals. One such shrine, Mitsumine Shrine, is said to have been founded by a prince, who after becoming lost in the mists of the Okuchichibu mountain range while on a mission to subdue a warring tribe, was guided to safety by a great white wolf.

Modern Japanese arts and literature also pay reference to the wolves. The animated film Princess Mononoke (1997), which is said to be based on the legend of the Mitsumine Shrine, features a great white wolf goddess that raises a human child called San, played by Yuriko Ishida in Japan

In folklore, the wolf was associated with the mountains (山, yama) and was thought to be both benevolent and malevolent. It is quick and agile, and Yanagita Kunio, the father of Japanese folklore studies, said that “the wolf can hide even where there is only a single reed”. In Edo period Japan, the word yama-inu became slang for a rabid dog.
