«In dreams and visions, I can vaguely see a paradise,
But no image of the local maidens.»


Timur Mutsurayev


These words of a popular Chechen swan, who has recorded some eight albums in the Russian language, have inspired me to creating this series. In the Islamic mythology, houris are beautiful maidens, meeting killed warriors on the threshold of paradise gardens.

Reci-divas are muses of self-criticism, disjoining the vanishing links of reality in cerebral cells, and inviting to dance onto the dead surface of walls.
