This illustration was inspired by my research in Russian Folklore and shamanism. I had a vision of a young shamaness (or shamina) carrying a white bird, and decided I had to paint them. As I painted, a story unfolded: A shadow has fallen over a small village on the outskirts of Russia, because one of the protective spirits has fallen into darkness. The young shamaness travels to the realm of darkness to rescue the spirit and heal her people.
