Artist's Statement

Marco the Rich was so jealous of his son-in-law, Vasily the Luckless, he sent him on a suicide mission to retrieve twelve ships Marco was owed by a Dragon. But, helped by a beautiful maiden, Vasily escaped from the Dragon, persuaded a whale to disgorge the ships and found buried treasure, while Marco became a lifelong wanderer. Vasily lived happily ever after with his wife and Marco's wealth and kingdon, helping the poor and giving food and drink to beggars.
