You will find the earliest paintings in the history of art - rock paintings. Huge rounded stones are keeping many legends, antique myths and real stories that interlace with present and maybe your own story...

Aromatic herbs, more than 19 kinds of orchids, pink flamingo, pelicano and many other special things.

We are going to find some colours in soil and stones and produce our own paint by the ancient method for marbling - painting on water, using the gifts of nature, as it was centures ago.

Old paints and antique heros... what kind of antique myth's character you are? Nature and paints will help you with the answer.
