Professor Anna Topaldzhikova named her latest novel “The Wheel of Life”. The book is dedicated to the great Revival artist Zahari Zograf. It is a novel about the dramatic path of the famous Bulgarian painter and his creations as a deep reflection on the most common questions the man asks to the vast emptiness of the cosmos- about life, death, God, love and the meaning of every human effort, write the publishers of the novel. The story of the book is based on Zahari Zograf’s authentic letters to Neofit Rilski (Neophyte of Rila). The author of the book analyses Zahari Zograf’s most famous murals, icons and portraits. "The story embarks on a journey back in time, penetrating the intimate world of a restless spirit for whom the creative power of man is equal to the divine", note the publishers of “The Wheel of Life”.
