“…having researched Old Turkic stone monuments in Mongolia, Kyrgyzstan, the Altai, China and Kazakhstan for several years, we arrived at the important conclusion that the stone statues — balbals — were actually a kind of territory marker, the ancient signs of bordering spheres of influence. In the present time, centuries later, it seems as if these monuments hand us a message from our ancestors: ‘We preserved these lands for you, and your mission is to pass them on to the next generation, so that they stand the test of time.’ That is precisely why we have named our project ‘The Stone Guards of the Great Steppe’.”
