Eastern

The Russian Playing Card Society issued a deck titled “Eastern” in 2015. This second edition, revised and improved, is dedicated to the ethnic Buryat culture.

Once every Buryat child was supposed to unhesitatingly answer the question which clan or tribe they belonged to, who their ancestors had been for five generations...

The Khongodor people, the Khori Buryats, the Bulagat and the Ekhirit tribes. Wnat do these words conjure up in your mind?

Probably, the rustling grass of the steppe, the aroma of the Aya-Ganga thyme herb, the boundless blueness of the sky or the clatter of the fleet-footed horses? What mysteries of the Buryat tribes do the mighty Baikal Lake and the Holy mountains hide?

Open your eyes, open your ears, open your memories...
