Original artwork description:

To understand the history of a place, it is often enough to know the translation of its name. Local place names speak volumes, so it is important to preserve them. The word "Ateş" is translated from the Crimean Tatar as fire.

Lights burned along the entire coast of Tarkhankut, showing the way to ships in bad weather and at night. After all, this place is very insidious from the point of view of navigation. Among all the Crimean coasts, this is one of the leaders in terms of the number of sunken ships. It is possible to concede the laurels of primacy only that Kerch and Sevastopol, but naval military battles there contributed to large floods.

The bonfires at the promontory were used for more than just navigation. They were also lit in the sea by fishermen, on special poles during the period of the mullet mass march.

The method of catching mullet, which is more than 2000 years old, was invented by the Ancient Greeks, and the port is still used today. A square net is pulled between 4 towers set in the sea. The sentinel, from the main tower, watches in anticipation of the joint. As soon as the joint passes over the net, on command, it is lifted simultaneously from all four towers. During the period of the mass movement of fish, which falls in the Tarkhankut region in autumn, fishing was carried out around the clock. To do this, at night, fires were made on poles for observation.

There are no towers in the bay near Bolshoy Atlesh. Here fishermen use the natural landscape. The observation post and the lifting of the nets takes place from equipped places on the rock. Where is the fishing camp. And the presence of scales in boats suggests that mullet fishing has already begun.
