Photographer's Note

"Hero" and "Hidden dragon..." weren't alone... :)
------------------------------------
The monument of Manas, the national Kyrgyz batyr (hero; who lived about 1000 years ago), is surrounded by fountains and located in front of the national concert hall in Bishkek, the capital.
There is the epic poem (epos) "Manas" devoted to the hero and members of his family. It is the longest in any human tongue (two-and-half times the length of the Indian "Mahabharata"). And there were some people who could sing it.
