About

The story of a winged horse holds an important place in the mythologies of many cultures around the world, including those derived from Buryatia. Inspiration depicts the legend of a celestial winged horse with white hair, who can only be fed with the purest milk. The stylised horse gazes towards the ‘upper world,’ or the heavens, a place only inhabited by divine beauty.
The cult of a horse, according to archaeologists and art historians, was replaced by the cult of a ‘solar deer,’ most often recognized as a great horned deer or elk and usually situated atop a totem, and whose image can be seen in the ancient monuments of Siberia dating back to the Neolithic period.
