Scene «Crime and punishment»


It is one of the most interesting compositions in Zalavruga and it is contingently called crime and punishment. The engraving shows three men (the front one is holding a bow) of quite big sizes and a bit strange form. They follow each other and are probably injured with arrows which poke out from their lower backs or they might be just quivers keeping arrows. The men are chasing someone. The one they are following can be seen to the right.It is a man too but the size of the engraving is twice as small as the size of the other three images. He is holding an object looking like a basket which he probably stole.It might be suggested that this enigmatic object is the main reason for chasing the man. Three baskets of the same kind are already taken away from the thief and they are found to the right and to the left of the chasers.
