The grotto of Ak-Baur.

Trip in Kazakhstan.

“For everything in this journey of life we are on, there is a right wing and a left wing: for the wing of love there is anger; for the wing of destiny there is fear; for the wing of pain there is healing; for the wing of hurt there is forgiveness; for the wing of pride there is humility; for the wing of giving there is taking; for the wing of tears there is joy; for the wing of rejection there is acceptance; for the wing of judgment there is grace; for the wing of honor there is shame; for the wing of letting go there is the wing of keeping. We can only fly with two wings and two wings can only stay in the air if there is a balance. Two beautiful wings is perfection. There is a generation of people who idealize perfection as the existence of only one of these wings every time. But I see that a bird with one wing is imperfect. An angel with one wing is imperfect. A butterfly with one wing is dead. So this generation of people strive to always cut off the other wing in the hopes of embodying their ideal of perfection, and in doing so, have created a crippled race”

Night-time tour in Semipalatinsk.

On a slope of a hill of Ak-Baur there is a grotto of the same name with rock drawings, drawn with red ochre. Lists of similar color do not meet any more anywhere in East Kazakhstan. Ak-Baur, a monument of early culture, is interesting also that it has lists in one grotto.
Up to now about 80 drawings remained: several images of the person, a mountain goat, are drawings of the dwelling and the vehicle, the others - various symbols and signs. The understanding of petroglyphs of Ak-Baur was offered by different scientists and researchers.
There is an assumption that in a grotto the way of rescue of mankind which in the ambassador Ice Age moved from the South the North in search of places of survival is drawn. The yurt a figurative form of a grotto was obviously symbolical for the ancient inhabitant of these places and is amazing for modern.
The natural opening of "roof" of a grotto in the form of heart has processing traces, perhaps, it was created by the person who made a ledge for fixing of the movement of the main constellations of the night sky. Petroglyphs lists of Ak-Baur confirm opinion of scientists that there were astronomical observations, and schematic petroglyphs confirm origin of pictography of the letter.
Summing up the result, one may say, that Ak-Baur grotto, was the main sanctuary of the ritual center. The dispute of researchers that its petroglyphs lists are the star chart or transfer a way of rescue of mankind, is very interesting, he confirms Ak-Baur's uniqueness as the brightest and mysterious monuments of culture of the past in the territory of Rudnyi of Altai.
