VESNA, Slavic Goddess of youth and life

Catalog number: SBH14

Your Price: 16.00 €

   

Vesna is the Goddess of youth and life, but also the Goddess of unbridled love and spring in Slavic mythology. She is associated with the birch tree, which of all the forest trees sprouts first. The word "Vesna" still means "spring" in some Slavic languages. Vesna is also associated with the first spring storm. Perun looks into the beautiful eyes of Vesna and suddenly drops his spear.

About sculptures:

These figurines are the original work of Serbian sculptor Jovan Petronijevic and they are a part of the unique chess set inspired by Slavic mythology, but you can have them separately, as a beautiful and original souvenir. Made of resin, hand painted and patinated, 13 cm high. Each has it's own original packaging.

Brand ROD is engaged in the manufacture and sale of souvenirs inspired by Serbian and Slavic mythology and ancestry.

Behind the brand is a team of talented artists whose main goal is for people who visit Serbia to charish the memory of this land of fairy-tales, myths and legends, and the country rich in tradition and history that goes back many centuries in the past. This is the Serbia that we present  through different forms of art and we have invested all of our talent and years of hard work, research and learning in this process.

In addition to silver and tin jewelry, clothes, leather and stoneware artwork  that we design and make,   we are proud to say that our creative workshop is the birthplace of the first, and only one in the world, chess set inspired by our Slavic mythology. This chess set is the work of sculptor Jovan Petronijević who became well known after solo exhibitions that presented his first series of sculptures (Vinca and neolithic period).

The whole chess (from chess board to figurines) is a work of art and has several different sets, including Gods and creatures from our mythology, and some of them you may know – Perun (the God of thunder), Svetovid (God of war and victory), Veles (God protector of animals), Dajbog (the kind, giving God), Mokos (Goddess of fertillity and protector of women), Svarog  (the Creator of universe and Heavenly Smith)...

Each of the figures of our chess set  is potentially a unique national souvenir and has a way of entering  homes of people around the world. This way they can learn something about our so underestimated mythology (as opposed to Greek, Roman and Norse).

In the name of the brand ROD, we welcome you!
Jovan Petronijević, sculptor and Jelena Petrović, project director.
