Totem poles
1999

Peeter Rjabov comes from the woodcarving family in Erzya-Moksha, all his brothers are woodcarvers and connected with the Podlesnaja Dovla art school that preserves traditional Erzya handicraft. The totem poles in Kütiorg are the ancient Erzya home-keepers. The man sows and the wife keeps the keys. At first they stood near the dam. However, when the flooding water swept them away from there, they moved to the northern gate of the Open Studio.
