About JoMA

  • "The Journal of Mythic Arts" is an online journal published by the Endicott Studio, an organization dedicated to literary, visual, and performance arts inspired by myth, folklore, fairy tales, and the oral storytelling tradition.

    For generations, artists have drawn upon mythic and folkloric symbolism to make contemporary works addressing the issues of their time. Our mission is to honor mythic artists of the past, support mythic artists working today, and to carry this tradition into the future.

Beautiful work, thank you so much for posting . Had seen the first image and never knew who it was by. Would love to visit his house museum and see everything up close!

Wow, I like these. It seems to me that they resemble Byzantine icons, especially the creatures and The Judgment Day painting. That probably isn't surprising for a Russian. :)

An absolutely wonderful article! I hope you don't mind...I linked to this article on my Pre-Raphaelite blog....

Thank you for introducing me to new artists with your enriching articles!

I love vasnetsov! Thanks very much for the posting, it made my day to look at his beautiful work again.

Do you know of this initiative for young people -

About this blog

  • After 11 years on web, the Summer 2008 issue of The Journal of Mythic Arts will be our last; thus JoMA's blog is now closing too.

    The archives of this blog will remain online, however. Here you'll find mythic arts information, resources, and past features on writers, artists, and performers who draw upon myth and folklore in their work.

    To access the blog's archives, use the handy search engine, or the date and catagory links below.

Where you'll find us now

  • Visit The Endicott Studio website here, and our news blog here.

Endicott Kids

  • All money raised through JoMA is donated to organizations working with abused, homeless, and at-risk children. (This will continue to be true of our archival pages even after JoMA ceases publication.)

Book Sales for
Endicott Kids

  • You support our children's charities when you buy books recommended anywhere on the JoMA site by following the book's link back to Amazon.com. This tags you as an Endicott customer, and we receive a small percentage of the sale.

    If we haven't got a link to the book, CD, or DVD that you want to purchase, you can still be an Endicott customer by entering Amazon through the link below. This nets a smaller percentage than the directly-linked books, but every bit helps and goes to a good cause.

    Please bookmark this page for all your Amazon purchases -- and help us to help the Endicott kids.
