There Used To Be Trees

The mural was created in street art museum, Saint Petersburg city. It was a group exhibition “Au”.

There used to be trees touching the clouds. Beautiful groves stretched beyond borders. The birds of paradise had been nesting in the forests for thousands of years. They were famous for their strength and character stronger than any shackles. Spreading their wings, they rushed to meet fate, and it was impossible to neither catch up with them, nor break or buy them.

What happened to you, lords of the forest and masters of the clouds? Where are your mighty wings waiting for the favorable winds? Do beautiful birds really like crawling among the stumps? It is not too late to recall the legends about the trees touching the clouds, about the endless groves and wings that are stronger than any shackles. Those were not legends but age-old forests, and you proudly soared above them spreading your wings.
