The images show the young trees growing on the brick walls of the estate, which belonged to famous Ukrainian collector, philanthropist and entrepreneur – Mikhail Tereshchenko. The estate was built in Denishi village in the Zhytomyr region in Ukraine by the project of the architect Gollandskiy at the end of XIX century.
The trees that grew on the ruined brick walls make us think about timeless values and remind us of the dilapidation of the material world.
In the concept of this composition, you can see the reflection of the history of the Tereshchenko family. Tereshchenko dynasty of philanthropists is known for their contribution to the development of charity in the world history. Only in Kiev, thanks to Tereshchenko, four famous museums have been created – National Art Museum of Ukraine, the Museum of Russian Art, the Museum of Western and Eastern Arts (named after Bogdan and Varvara Khanenko) and Taras Shevchenko Museum. Tereshchenko financed the building of social institutions, the Red Cross Foundation, and many other projects all over Europe. The inscription: "Aspiration to public good" was placed on patrimonial noble coat of arms Tereshchenko family.
This photo of wall with trees, reminds us that philanthropy, love for people and for beauty – is real life, and these are eternal values.
