Sitnitsa: "In our religious tradition very many nationalities. Folk Art. And if we litsezreem our ancient icons, they are almost all just remind folk art. Than it is priceless."
Ulitenok: "Your attitude toward idolatry and Christianity?"
Sitnitsa"First in almost all graced more. Well, let’s say, the Trinity, or when we put on the grave of Easter eggs — it’s totally pagan! And yet we dominated Christianity, with its very strict moral principles."
Ulitenok: "By the way, do not znyavolvayuts Christian canons artist?"
Sitnitsa: "On the contrary, it greatly enhances understanding of the world of the artist."
