Description of the artwork «The legend of the stork»
Moldova are often long fought against the Turkish invaders. Basically the collision consisted of battles in the forests and sieges of fortresses. Once the Turks invaded in Moldova, besieged the fortress Gorodishte. The Sultan has put in the forefront of his guard, consisting of superbly-trained and merciless Janissaries – nothing could penetrate the walls of the fortress without their knowledge. However, the defenders of the citadel did not give her and fought for life and death. But soon they ran out of both water and power to fight. Then the Moldovan soldiers saw in the sky hundreds of white storks flying to the fortress. Birds are constantly dropping the defenders of the fortress grapes, thirst and raising morale. The Turks, falling to the ground every time the wind from the wings of birds chased them, soon parted with the idea to take Horodiste and retreated.
