Description of the artwork «Totma»

There are two legends about the origin of the name of the city. One of them says that Peter I on his first visit to Totma said: "This is not a city, this is darkness." The second one says that “Totma” is translated as “a city conjuring water”, which is allegedly explained by the fact that the Sukhona river changes its direction twice a year (since it originates in Lake Kubensky, and when the flood water level in the river is higher than in the lake, in the upper reaches of the river, the direction of the current changes to the opposite and for some time the river flows towards the lake, from which it flows).
