The composition "Hussar" is another brave warrior from the new collection "Courage" in the author's stylization of Zhigzhit Bayaskhalanov's workshop.
The saturation of the image of "Hussar" is based on a characteristic artistic solution, showing exceptionally expressive features, cutting off all that is superfluous. We see how a shako with a visor and a sultan appears in light geometric strokes, a dolman with a high collar, embroidered with several rows of laces, loops and buttons, hiking leggings and even a saber in hand.
At the same time, the romanticization of the image of the hussar, as a symbol of courage and masculinity, is so strongly absorbed into our cultural code that a young man, ready for exploits and adventures, immediately appears before our eyes.
The knife and the stand here act as a single whole, one is impossible without the other, figuratively connecting and completing the drawn image.
