Ob-Ugriс Gods and spirits sculptural alley represents mythology of the space division of the world. Located in Khanty-Mansiysk, the group of 7 monumental and decorative sculptures called “Gods and spirits” displays the rich mythology of the Ob-Ugric peoples. Each sculpture height – 3.8 m and width – 1.2 m resembles a tree that grows from the ground, as if symbolizing the universal tree that connects the past, present and future. The top resembles a crown of holy tree, which shows the different characters of the gods and spirits with their environment. Besides, ornaments, located on the pole, relate directly to the images of the composition, and contain ornaments, symbols and mysterious codes that make up the meaning and essence of each of the compositions.
