Alexander Zhyvotkov. Tree of Life

November 30, 2019 3:00 am - June 18, 2020 3:00 am


Tree of Life’ is the latest work from the “Georgian” series of Alexander Zhyvotkov. This is the tree of life, the tree of fertility, and the tree of knowledge. Regardless of its name, tree is one of a fundamental symbols in the system of mythological consciousness of many cultures, the embodiment of the universal concept of universe. At the zero point of mythopoetic axis of coordinates is the image of a tree, the crown and roots of which connect spiritual and physical principles. The images of the world pillar, mountains, stairs and of course the cross are synonymous with this symbol. Alexander Zhyvotkov uses a similar double symbolism in his work. In the center of his tree, he placed the cross of St. Nina – a cross woven from a vine.
