One Tradition

I brought out its central part in the Orange-Red color range, thus enhancing the contrast not only with the green background (symbolizing the Mother Nature), but also among the forms themselves in the composition.

So overall, we get a brightly affecting Core on the shapeless green spots, which with its Six Elements (scattered around it) represents the Seven Continents.

In the basis of the project lies the Sacred Number 7.

Six warm ribbed elements represent the transition between the indestructible Folklore Tradition and Modern Abstract Art. Therefore, their shape distinguishes from the oval Core.

In the central part of the canvas is composed Bulgarian Girl, forward looking to the optimistic right diagonal. This part is the greatest one because it symbolizes Europe and especially Bulgaria, the Power of Bulgarian Spirit and our Folklore Tradition and Culture.

The Core and the Six Elements show how we must present our Folklore Culture and Tradition to the World and how to spread its beauty.
