"As a child I strolled the streets of Leningrad (now St.Petersburg) and observed how diverse my beautiful city was. Inspired by the legends and Peter The Great historical heritage, everyone in my hometown knows these stories. One of the legends tells about sky guardians, powerful patrons, who protect the city and preserve its treasures. St. Isaac’s Cathedral is a symbol of such a legend and I gave it a birds-eye-view to emphasize this idea".
