Jewelry knife «Fire and water» (buryat traditional)

The knife «Fire and water» could be considered as one of the tops of Zhigzhit Bayaskhalanov’s applied art. The beauty of the piece lies in its contrasts, based on the combinations of textures and accents of colour. The granular surface of the handle and the noose, covered with skate fish leather, contrast with the smoothly polished scabbard made from walrus bone. The mysterious shine of a sea wave inside green chrysoprases meets a dancing flame in the depths of clear garnets. The metal glare of silver is balanced out by the warm glow of gold, bringing a play of sunlight into the prevailing cold range of colours.

It is not accidental that the decoration of the knife includes the image of a dragon controlling thunder and lightning. An electrical charge is like a flame, and clouds carrying rain similar to water. Embodying the principle of Yin and Yang, the dragon is a symbol of unity with the powers of nature.
