Olonkho is the Sakha people’s major cultural heritage, that was later proclaimed by UNESCO as the world’s oral & intangible masterpiece. It is a heroic epic tale that might narrated by up to 20,000 verses. It is told by a Olonkho singer or story-teller.
In the previous post «Olonkho, Sakha heroic epos, in Timofei Stepanov’s painting The Upper World«, I wrote that the famous Yakutian artist, Timofei Stepanov, appeared to be the first, who depicted the Sakha heroic epic «Olonkho» in the series of paintings.
I noted, «Timofei Stepanov was named as a Olonkho story-teller in fine arts. Indeed, one painting is like one big tale with many small stories.» After, I offered to see my iPhone photographs of fragments of one art piece called «The Upper World.» In the end, I promised to continue the topic.
