Alkonost and Sirin is a diptych, they are the two sides of the medal, the opposite of each other, and together they form a Conjunction – the Union of the Sun and the Moon of the alchemists.

Joined together they form a powerful archetype, a presence of a balanced energy of Yin and Yang.

Oil, golden and silver leaf on canvas.
