Description de l'artiste :
A heavy burden layed upon a family of a farmer, who lived in a little village near town of Murom. His newborn child Ilya has been suffered from a mysterious illness in his youth. People has been whispering that the farmer somehow evoked the anger of forest spirits which cause his son being unable to move at all. Day and night, he was lying on a stove in his father's house waiting for his time to come.
Thirty three years later, on a bright summer day of Ivan Kupala three vagrant pilgrims turned up in this village. Ilya's parents were out working in the fields while he was lying on the stove, miserable and lonely. Suddenly, he's heard a knock on the door - pilgrims were asking for some water. Ilya yelled at them as he couldn't move but then one of the pilgrims turned at him and told: "Get off that stove and stand up to your legs as you are completely cured!". Then a miracle happened for Ilya not only indeed was able to walk again but also discovered an incredible strenght within himself. Bowed to the pilgrims, he swore to use his great Bogatyr powers to protect his homeland from numerous enemies.
That is how the glorious path of Ilya Muromets begins...
