FREQUENTLY DISCUSSING QUESTIONS ABOUT TAPESTRIES

ABOUT  THE INFLUENCE OF ART PRODUCTS ON  A HUMAN ORGANISM

The problem of preservation of human health consists of preservation of his two interconnected components - physical and mental health. The material basis of environment subject influence on his health forces concerns to a choice of environmental material things  attentively and after careful consideration. Main tapestry influences are:
1. psychoemotional;
2. biophysical;
3. protective hygienic
4. therapeutical

PSYCHOEMOTIONAL INFLUENCE OF A PIECE OF ART

The psychoemotional influence of a piece of art represents  the complex process of a combination of influence of an art work theme represented on a picture and a colour palette of product. Depending on abilities and desire of the artist this influence can be of various force and orientation, can be  expressively negative or positive, but can be complex, uncertain.

Night? Sun ? Sky? Fire? Berry? Grass?
? ? ? ? ? ?

Different colours remember us about different things

The various products influence the different people unequally. But, nevertheless, there are opportunities to create products not having negative influence, friendly to man.
It is known, that the certain frustration of human health suppose occurrence of nervous pulses causing visual illusions. The material basis of occurrence of these pulses is characterized by specificity of a biochemical picture of internal human environment. The contemplation of a real picture has a boomerang effect - at its perception in a brain of the man are arising the pulses appropriate to this real picture and  is forming   the appropriate biochemical picture during visual and mental perception of a picture.
This influence does not pass without leaving a trace, depending on a kind of an influencing picture the brain of the man receives various tunings determining hes behaviour in the future.

INFLUENCE => => MEMORY => =>BEHAVIOUR

The material basis of this process has the certain biochemical attributes, that enables to use art products as therapeutical remedies.
THE ABILITY OF PIECES OF ART TO RENDER PSYCHOEMOTIONAL INFLUENCE ON THE MAN REQUIRES THE SPECIAL RESPONSIBILITY OF THE ARTIST AT THE CREATION OF PRODUCTS.
ONE OF THE MAIN PRINCIPLES IN WORK OF OLGA KNYAZ  AUTHOR'S COLLECTIVE IS EXCEPTION OF NEGATIVE INFLUENCES  OF PRODUCTS ON THE MAN AND APPLICATION OF GOOD PROTECTION TUNINGS  AND RESISTANCE AGAINST NEGATIVE INFLUENCES.

BIOPHYSICAL INFLUENCE OF HANDMADE WEAVING PRODUCTS         TOP OF PAGE

The main materials, which were used by the weavers in work remain constant during the long period of a history: a wool, cotton, flax, jute, sisal and silk. And today these materials keep their value.
Thus, the vegetative materials - cotton and flax are more often applied  in internal structures of a weaver's interlacing, for  warp(basis) strings. And as the external threads most frequently are applied woolen and silk threads.
Both the wool, and silk are materials of an animal origin, are substances, in which structure there is a significant amount  of proteines. The proteine nature explains the special properties of these materials. The behaviour of fibers in various conditions is variously and these distinctions remind for proteine materials of a wool and silk the behaviour of alive essences.
Really, the properties thermal conductivity of these materials are close to similar properties of a human hairs and.

Thermal conductivity  of materials*

Material Moisture, weight % Thermal conductivity coefficient,
Watt/meter x Kelvin
Concrete with stones 8 1,28
Brick wall Air-dry 0,67-0,87
Wooden oak wall 6-8 0,2-0,43
Wooden pine wall 8 0,14-0,41
Woolen felt Air-dry 0,047-0,058

*Thermal conductivity coefficient means  the quantity of the heat transfered under conditions of one unit of every next parameters: time, material thickness, temperature difference and area

[Data accordingly to Koshkin N.I and Shirkevich M.G., 1975]

Also similar there is an interaction of these materials with sound waves and light.

Sound energy absorbing   ability of materials**

Material Frequency, Hz
125 250 500 1000 2000 4000
Brick wall 0,024 0,025 0,032 0,041 0,049 0,07
Wooden wall 0,10 0,11 0,11 0,08 0,082 0,11
Carpet with pile 0,09 0,08 0,21 0,27 0,27 0,37

**Sound energy absorbing  ability  means  the ratio of the absorbed energy of a sound to the energy falling on a reflecting surface]

[Data accordingly to Koshkin N.I and Shirkevich M.G.,1975]

The man who is taking place near to product of manual weaving feels comfort that this product protects him from sound waves, serves good protection against loss of heat by radiation of infra-red rays from a surface of the skin.
The electrical field caused by an electrical charge of a wool or silk, varies depending on the geophysical factors, and excet this, also, cooperates with an electrical field caused charge of a skin and hair of the man. The electrical field of a surface of threads of product varies, also, depending on the texture of a fabric: on the tips of nap strings the electrical charge is more concentrated, the various kinds of interlacings give various redistribution of an electrical charge on a surface of product.
The interaction of light with a surface of a textile material also influences distribution of an electrical charge on a surface of product. The processes of photon annihilation on a surface of firm substance, refraction in translucent external layers of substance and reflection under various angles with reception of beautiful effect  double-light are included in this interaction.
THE RESPONSIBLE ROLE OF CREATION OF PRODUCT WITH THE HARMONIOUS PHYSICAL CHARACTERISTICS TAKES FOR  HIMSELF THE ARTIST, WHICH TRUSTS TO THE SENSATIONS, AND PERCEPTION CAUSED BY TUNING ON PROTECTION OF GOOD AND RESISTANCE BEFORE NEGATIVE INFLUENCES.

 HYGIENIC PROPERTIES OF USED MATERIALS          TOP OF PAGE

We use, mainly, natural materials, that provides all advantages of these products.
The colouring is carried out strictly on State Standards of Russian Federation and foreign countries, so any influence of the dyes, reliably fixed in a material, with an environment is excluded. The dye is inside a fiber, and fiber is not falling off, just as are falling off firm paints. And the good care with removal  of a dust excludes occurrence   of  allergic influence on the human organism. Sometimes, the allergic influences attributed  to a natural wool and silk it appear, actually, frequently are caused by a polluted surface, by a dust and microorganisms, but not the clean materials.
At the same time, aging and the decomposition of plastic materials, of which synthetic threads usually consist, liberates significant amount of chemical substances, which can have not only allergic and but also other harmful influences.
Besides, the electrical field of a surface of a synthetic fiber does not correspond to magnitudes and ratio of distribution of  a charge density of on a surface of a skin and hairs of alive essences. It is negative technogenous  factor, which should be excluded as far as possible from an environment of the man.
The thermal isolating  properties of the majority of synthetic fibers appreciablly concede to properties of woolen and silk fibers.
The light reflecting ability of a synthetic fiber differs by sharpness, patches of light from thicker and smooth synthetic fiber, in comparison with natural fibers also differs from natural.
In view of annual deterioration of enviroment on the Earth in general, it is necessary to consider, that natural materials (wool, silk, flax, cotton, sisal, jute) of each previous year of preparation are more ecologically pure, than each next year. As, at a good care, our products serve to the owner during all of his life, and also his successors, the created today environment with the art textile products can appear very favorable, in the ecological relation, in the future.

IN THE VALUABLE PIECE OF ART  THE   NATURAL MATERIALS SHOULD NOT BE REPLACED WITH SYNTHETIC MATERIALS.  AT A CHOICE OF MATERIAL THE ARTIST CARRIES OUT THE STRICT CONTROL OF CONFORMITY OF QUALITY AND THE PRESENCE OF THE YARN MANUFACTURER CERTIFICATES.

THERAPEUTICAL INFLUENCE OF PIECES OFf ART        TOP OF PAGE

A usual psychoemotional and the colour-acting influence  of pieces of art on the man, in case of products manual weaving, is supplemented by the special biophysical influences of natural materials, of which these products are created.
In case of textile pieces of art - the influence is soft, but strong, on processes of   nervous activity and on an organism in general can be useful for normalization of world perception, blood vessel tone, management of magnitude of thresholds irritability, perception of tuningss of goods and resistance against adverse influences.
Taking into account the main enviroment interaction of our textile -   electromagnetic, we should expect influence of tapestry on the geomagnetic sensitive diseases. It seems true. As show observations, these properties of textile pieces of  manual art work can appear useful at depressions, neuroses , blood vessel disorders, chronic weariness.
It is the result of complex  action of  the art work.

The influence of different pices of art on the man can be various. For example, it can be recommended to choose individually acceptable colour scores at the creation of  a product.

The generalizing characteristic of the  therapeutical properties of a piece of art and  of the influence of its set tunings on the certain behaviour of the man  is considered  as the ability of the product to bring good luck.
WE  DECLARE SINCERELY, THAT THE PRODUCTS OF OUR'S AUTHOR COLLECTIVE OF  HELP TO KEEP HEALTH AS A PREVENTIVE MEANS AND BRING GOOD LUCK TO THE OWNERS.
