Caucasus: Spring, Blossoming Beauty & Art

I started a big art project - a fluffy snow-white carpet with bright design.

I went to Karachaevo-Cherkessia, to the wool market in Uchkeken.

People living here are experienced in producing wool fibers for knitting and carpet making.

It will take me several months to create a new carpet, using very ancient tapestry technique.

In this farmers agricultural market you can also buy a lot of useful things and

excellent ecological products

chicken, hens, roosters, sheep and caws.

The road to this place passes along a beautiful valley

between emerald green hills and plateaus  connecting this area with Elbrus

On the way home I usually visit an open gallery for plants and flowers to buy some for my garden

These green fields and laccolites hills are close to my home, just several km

Blossoming cherry tree meets at the gate of my house.

These flowers are decorating my garden now

Spring is so gentle and inspiring…
