LESYA KARA-KOTSYA is an established Ukrainian artist who has developed her own unique style. Some art critics call it fantasy, others call it ethnic, she herself calls it karakoko that comes from her name. This picture shows a Bull which Has Drunk All Water in the Yard. This is an old folk riddle. This riddle is so old and wise that nobody can guess the answer, and the answer is Frost – that’s when you can’t drink water: when it’s frozen. The original picture is 60x80cm, acrylic on canvas with wide use of gold leaf and genuine silver.
Another amazing piece is The Dove. This is a magic picture, everybody loves it. It’s full name is A Dove Spread Her Wings, Flew Up to the Sky and Turned Into a Star. Beautiful, isn’t it?
