There are 152 paintings and reflections in this catalog dedicated to my travels around different countries. The name of the catalog is not accidental. A new door has opened in my creative work - these canvases are from my travels around unusual, magical places - Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, Morocco, Egypt. These countries have become a discovery for me - the colors and the antiquity, which live their own lives and don't change. I plunged in a literal sense into antiquity.
The catalog also contains paintings from travels in Serbia and Switzerland. And Yelets, a Russian town, is my childhood city, where I return every time after my travels.
