How are true masterpieces of art born? Where do the artistic images come from, where to get inspiration and at what time the muse suddenly visits the creator? The “Winged Dreams” author’s dagger can answer these questions, it wonderfully reflects the idea of the trinity of the world: Earth, Sky and in the center – Man.
The “Winged Dreams” dagger is dedicated to the 200th anniversary of the art of Zlatoust metal engraving and the virtuoso of this business – the legendary Ivanko Krylatko. The greatest merit of Ivan Bushuyev is that he, along with his comrades, boldly introduced story compositions, miniatures on the themes of Russian history into the range of jewelryitems. His amazing creative energy gave a powerful impetus to manufacture which Zlatoust is famous for to date. And his winged dreams gave the whole city a symbol of the winged horse which is now forever associated with Zlatoust – its past, present and future.
