Wedding procession from Koghb to Igdir. 1985, wood, oil on canvas, 69×70, family property
Through his imagination Eduard Isabekyan depicts a fact, to which he couldn't be witness. It is the wedding parade of his parents - Satenik from Koxb and Hmayak from Igdir and depicts the start of their biography and joint life.
The amount of the participants of the event is reduced on the picture; only two images of horsemen and two images of musicians (with zourna and drum) on the whole right part of the picture. The image of the bride sitting on the horse croup is on the center of the canvas and express the purity and poetry of her character, her graceful posture generalized, delicacy and emotionality.
The pace of the fiancé holding the horse bridle is perceived as a static posture rather than a movement.
The movement as such, is noticed in the figures, in the position of the heads, direction of the faces and looks. Even the images of the horsemen and musicians are perceived as men saying goodbye, and not as companions. The central figure (bride) with white silvery veil and long dress is a fine axis for the saturation of dark colors. The light shade and dimensional design of the dress enrich the beauty of the artistic processing.
This work endowed with chamber mood is the image allegory of chronology, a Philosophical perception of familiar characters and the home country, of the time movement.
