From the series "Moscow – Demiurgia"

These are pictures to novel "Moscow – Demiurgia" and they are individual works of art at the same time. We can see Moscow like mythological creatures from Demiurgia see it.

The first creature is serpinton Poshkivan. Who is Serpinton? He`s peryton covered in scales. And peryton is a stag with bird wings.

Next - grikan Vaii. Grikan is half griffon, half rabikan. A griffon is half eagle, half lion, but rabikan is a large, dazzling, very fast horse.   He is quite spectacular looking. Imagine – the body of an Arabian jumper, with huge wings tightly fixed to his sides, with the rear feet of a lion, springing as he walks, and a tail with a tassel on the end. On the other hand, he strides heavily on his front, bird-like paws, as if he is putting all of his weight into each step. Although he has the head of an eagle, he has a horse’s neck. In sunlight he appears fiery red, but in overcast weather he seems almost carroty. When he runs it`s like Bengal light goes off under his feet; when he flies, he sparkles from the tips of his claws to his powerful beak.

And here is Moscow through the eyes of centaur Dideric.  Dideric is a white centaur. He has a white horse’s body with the upper torso of a graying man of forty to forty-five, not a frail man, but also not pumped up like a muscle man, a massive fish tail, a powerful neck, and about a one-foot winding horn stuck out of his forehead
