Among others we find the face of Taras Shevchenko, a Ukrainian poet, writer, artist, public and political figure, as well as folklorist and ethnographer. Shevchenko is also known for many masterpieces as a painter and an illustrator.

We also find petroglyphs and a series of creatures, including trees that seem to look like Boyars, members of the highest rank of the feudal Bulgarian, Moscovian, Ruthenian (Ukraine and Belarus), Wallachian, and Moldavian aristocracies. The result is a colourful, and interesting fairytale that invites us to reflect on its meaning and relevance.
