The essence of art is the ability to reflect the dynamics of the space around us transferred to the artistic image. Therefore, the impetuosity of the modern world has become so intense that artists and artisans were required to find completely new creative and technical solutions to these problems. A collection of the 21st Century's Sports appeared so. Therein a small sculptural form conveys the entire expression of the sports competition of the XXI century by reaching the highest pinpoint accuracy in its performance. The winning ankle trip shot in the fight of judoists is magnified through the tilt planes holding the sculptural composition, and rotary/observational dynamic system, and unusual materials. In the Judo composition, the excellency and skill of goldsmiths and silversmiths has combined with the art of sports, where every movement is honed to perfection.

For the first time, the collection of the 21st Century Sports consisting of 14 works was presented at the Second European Games 2019 in Minsk. Moreover, Judo, the first work from the series, was presented by Alexander Lukashenko, the President of the Republic of Belarus, to the Russian President Vladimir Putin. That event was widely covered by the international press. When creating a new work, the authors made a lot of coloristic and dynamic innovations while further enhancing the expression of a warsle in small statuary.
