ALLATRA TV reporters spoke with great interest to the artist about the historical value of ancient signs and symbols found in different parts of the world, their primordial meaning. “The rock art originated a very long time ago ... I think that this huge culture existed for a reason. Its main function was the transfer of knowledge ... It was a very important communication function. Without it, the development of civilization would have been impossible.”
