Sacrifice to Dragon Askiz - Askiz is a river in Khakassia, not far from which there is the Qazanovsky Dragon rock. It is called Qazanovsky because there is a village nearby, founded by Khan Qazan. On the other side of the mountain, life is in full swing - people have settled there, tourists come. However, strangers do not rise here. Until now, sacrifices are performed under the dragon's head. - Azat Minnekaev



All our paper and canvas prints are made using the giclee process, a technology for fine art reproduction using high resolution images, archival paper or canvas, pigment rather than dye-based inks, and a high-quality inkjet printer. With proper care, giclee prints can last 100-200 years without significant fading. Your artwork is printed and framed to order. Please allow 7-10 business days for delivery.
