Description of the artwork «Volos»

The work was performed in the traditional technique of hot batik.

To create such a character as Volot or Velet in artistic painting, I decided to dwell on the image of a giant athlete. Details about the search for this image are written in my article.

So, having sorted out the topic, I came to the conclusion that the images of heroes and heroes — Ilya Muromets, Alyosha Popovich, Dobrynya Nikitich, etc. — are widely spread and more understandable to the modern man. Images of Russian heroes and heroes were widely reflected in the works of famous artists, for example, the panel "Athlete" Vrubel M. A., or "Athletes" Vasnetsov V. M., etc. To display the heroes in the visual arts, common and typical traits are used - a powerful physique, with broad shoulders, high growth, and above all youth.

To create such an image as Volot, I used traditional methods of depicting giants and heroes - this is an image of a strong young man. The main theme of the image was the mighty power of the Volotov giants, who for their economic needs change the direction of the raging river. I took two images of a young Volot, tearing out centuries-old and mighty trees with a root, and Volot a young but already experienced moving mountain ranges.
