We each painted on the two sides of the face our ancestral tribal symbols. Mine is the TURUL the divine messenger of the Magyars (the way Hungarians call ourselves), who perches on the Tree of Life along with the other spirits of unborn children in the form of birds. Legends hold that the Turul was the forefather of the first Hungarian king (and our ancestor Attila the Hun as well). Nomadic Magyars had a shamanistic tradition and traveled in tribes along with other Turkic and Mongolian tribes in Easter-Central Asia..all of our history before 900 A.D. was kept oral. They were called the Turul clan, who migrated toward the west from Central Asia and settled in the Eastern part of Europe in the 9th century AD. The clan was later called the House of Arpad, and traditionally descends from the wise and just king Nimrod, the first king on Earth.
