Popular print is a special genre of the decorative arts with the distinctive inherent figurativeness.
It represents a folkloristic picture, a very special kind of the graphic art characterized by
simplicity and laconism.
The fable beings - Lion, Unicorn and Sirin, whose images can be often seen on the folk art items
– come out from the wood, the backstage, as if from the remote past. Arriving from the East, the
images of these mythical animals caught the special fancy of folk artists. Lion symbolized
strength and power, Unicorn - fight against evil, Sirin - wellbeing.
Carved pattern of the Russian window casing served as a prototype for creating the ornament
framing the scene.
