Earth Day

Vasnetsov's homage to Mother Earth (on 45th Earth Day)

The Gifts of Mother Earth and the Soul of Nature
I come from you,
you carry me,
you nourish me,
and you will take me after my death
Russian variant
Born from the earth,
fed by the earth,
into the earth I will go!
Soul of Nature
I am the soul of nature
That gives life to the universe
From me all things proceed
And to me they must return
The artists that joined the Abramtsevo artists' circle in late 19th century Russia were attracted by Abramtsevo’s rural location on Radonezh soil.
