Art Book project "Thracian Treasure"
“Thracian Treasure“ is a book about ancestors and descendents. The main message is that the greatest value of a culture is the spirituality, reborn in the philosophy of the after generations. The ancient Thracian civilization left us a huge heritage of gold artifacts and beautiful images, astounding the world with their perfection. It gave us Orpheus – the precursor of the unique Bulgarian singing, loaded with the inexhaustible vitality of his land. Her maternal voice and reviving energy inspired the creation in poetry and lines a new Thracian treasure, which cannot be displayed in museums or touched by humans’ hands. It was born in the light of the plentiful Thracian sun, waking in words and images a new syncretism of a creative harmony – a dialogue between a poet and an artist. Let it touch your souls with a gold ring of words, embodied in pictures.
