The rustic pencil drawing typical of Kristjan Raud gives a hint of monumentality, which is characteristic of the artist's small-format drawings as well. Creating his own specific artist's handwriting in the early years of the 20th century while going from farm to farm and collecting antiques for the Estonian National Museum, the visual angularity of men's crafts (e.g. beer kegs) can be felt here as well. Combining this with the vertical dimension of the religious philosophy heard in Germany, the result is a soulful peasantry, which resulted in the drawings that most accurately capture the spirit of the Kalevipoja epic so far. Kristjan Raud magnified humble art techniques (charcoal and pencil on paper) as if they were powerful and important art techniques.
