The leitmotif of this design is Maslenitsa, an ancient Russian Holiday that celebrates the imminent ending of winter. Maslenitsa is also called the Winter Holiday, a time when friends and relatives gather together. Traditionally the feasts leftovers are thrown into fire, and it’s ash is buried under the snow, symbolizing the fertilization of crops.
