This fresco is inspired by a legend...

Stein am Rhein - Switzerland

The mother bird pelican is another symbol of motherly self-sacrifice in order to provide for her young.
Myth indicates pelican mothers fed offspring on her own blood, assuring their well-being at the cost of her own life.

Unluckily this ancient and elaborated fresco has had the effect to make Sergey feel even hungrier in his search for grilled sausages….

Pelican House is the name of our National Blood Bank: another instance of the myth in use for modern times.
