I haven't been drawing much for quite many years and it really shows.. but I like to do it and sometimes it happens that I make sketches that I like even if I'm not good enough to make a finish drawing any more but just to get the idea done well enough.. today I felt to draw some signs/letter/symbols because resently there are some that states that some of these should be classified as racial because there are some smaller groups of people who misuse them as their symbols.
I can't really agree to that because for me and many other these signs/letters/symbols are free and of culture, history, identity and religion. Not a symbol for hate and nonsense, non-logical propaganda that these minority display them as. It's enough that they were allowed to steal the ancient sunsymbol but at least makes more sense because then there was millions of people causing suffering and destruction.. not small groups as it is today..
I really hope people come to sense and accept that there are more people who treasure history and the importance to these by not let the minority with lack of good opinions win these over.. that will only gain their "cause's and feed them to go further
"The Goat: The common ground is that he is of course "satanic", or at least "very evil". European culture is more complex than that so I will try and dip a bit deeper in my own native culture: Krampus is part of the Rauhnacht-traditions. This is the time of Berchta and Wotan since it is the darkest time of the year. While everything within nature sleeps and seems to be dead, there is a spark of new life and light, which is the Yuletide, the winter solstice of the sun. This belief is of course equivalent to Christmas and the birth of the child of God, which is just another mythological reference to the Sun and Solarcults of polytheistic tribes. The light of the sun and the dark of the night were two opposite powers, so it's important to understand the pagan view on life. It's about survival, quite literally. Krampus has a hazelrod in his hand which is a symbol for fertility and new life. His spirit will bring back new fertility into the souls of the people back into nature. He wakes up the sleeping dead of nature. Traditionally, the Krampus shows up with Saint Nicolaus and demands from young children to stay good mannered for the upcoming year. Since many of these traditions have Indo-European roots it is important to take a closer look at him: Goats are worshipped as potent, sexual and highly fertile animals in pagan mythologies. The "scary" Aspect of their outlook has a spiritual purpose: They must scare the winter spirits away. In order to communicate with the spirits of the Dead, you have to become one yourself. That's what many shamanic cultures around the world do, when they dress up and wear masks. The Goat is sexual, and the antlers are phallus-symbols of the penis. It's about new life. Since this archaic tradition is all about praying for the Sun and daylight to come back, it literally symbolizes the promise of the cycles of nature: that everything will be transformed, nothing is lost, everything is part of nature and is part of that big cycle. The Greek God Pan shows that very clearly, as he brings fertility back into nature and generally as seen as a highly sexual and earth-based essence of nature and life."

Короткий миг, определенный Богами для нашего присутствия на этой земле, каждый проживает по-своему.
Каждому из нас назначена своя дорога,поставлена своя задача.Иначе ни в творениях инженерной мысли,ни, тем более, в работах художников не было бы никакого смысла.И нужно помочь каждому увидеть свое предназначение на Земле, понять СВОЙ смысл жизни,научиться размышлять не о том,что приходит и уходит, а о том,что вечно во все времена, - о живой природе и потребности творить.
Своими работами я стараюсь помочь смотрящему зажечь в себе огонек творения, который наполнит его жизнь смыслом.
