Saint Rockets, a metaphorical work by Roman Minin, is filled with symbols and dedicated to a tragic situation of recent years in Ukraine. During clashes, losses, and blurred ideas about the truth the artist calls for an ability to preserve one’s soul and remember about the ultimate values even in the darkest hour. The multiple meanings distinguishing Minin’s works are emphasized here by a visual solution – its monumentality, clear-cut, expressive and detailed graphics, contrasting and symbolic combination of colors remind of Byzantium mosaics or medieval stained-glass windows in churches.
