On March 13, in Nikola-Lenivets Art Park in the Kaluga region, Russia, in honor of the Shrovetide celebration, an art object made of vines was burned, which was called the “Coronavirus Ogre Castle” because of the coronavirus infection Covid-19. The castle was created by Nikolay Polissky, the founder of the art park.

According to Nikolay, “as soon as we burn it [the castle] down, the disease will subside, and everyone will be healthy. Since Covid-19 is the main problem, the main trouble for the whole world all year long, we will build such a corona ogre castle and finally put an end to the virus for good. We will burn down this evil creature, its lair.”

The burning of the art object was watched by hundreds of people.

Shrovetide, also known as the Pre-Lenten Season, is the Christian period of preparation before the beginning of the liturgical season of Lent.

During the season of Shrovetide, it is customary for Christians to ponder what Lenten sacrifices they will make for Lent. Another hallmark of Shrovetide is the opportunity for a last round of merrymaking associated with Carnival and Fastelavn before the start of the somber Lenten season; the traditions of carrying Shrovetide rods and consuming Shrovetide buns after attending church is celebrated.
