Original artwork, 100 x 100 cm, Oil on canvas, 2018

 

This painting is included in Pavel Mitkov’s catalogue „Zen – Asia inspiration“ 2019.  The storyline of the painting consists of three oil- bearing roses (Rosa Damascena  – the well-known Bulgarian rose). The main element in the painting is the famous Bulgarian bridge in Koprivshtica “The first rifle”. Three typical for Bulgaria elements, that carry a massive energy load are presented on the canvas – roses, architecture from the national revival period, and gold. They are combined meticulously in a way that turns this painting into unique symbolic message.

When creating this canvas, the artist has used little golden sheets and golden dust. This was not just an esthetic choice, but a deliberate decision.  Because the Koprivshtica region is rich in gold and the extract of the Rosa Damascena’s leaves – the rose oil, is often higher than the price of the gold itself.  The bridge is a symbol of the transition from one world to another.

In the lower right corner there is a signature of the artist, together with the year of creating of the painting – 2018. In the lower left corner could be found the name of the painting. 

Two couples in love are depicted on the bridge.
