Modern civilization penetrates slowly and fragmentarily in there, it is intricately woven into the local way of life. The closest town is 300 km away, and the transport connection functions only in winter time. Local and family legends and traditions are still mighty in the settlement.

    Love the woman and child behind the curtain, which is almost like a thin layer of snow flakes. It is like a modern Madonna and Child. Perhaps Madonna of the Snow.
