Zhurshch is a cosmic clown in the likeness of a cat, a kind of a hob and artful trickster. He is one who can make laugh anyone, each of a small child and a rigid warrior. Zhurshch is pictured with his magical attributes in his hands: zhurschchegon in his right hand (sorry, my English-speaking friends, I know it looks like impossible to be spoken) and with the golden key in his left hand. Zhurshchegon is a sacred device a real screamer which helps to see the comic side of life and can evoke an uncontrollable joy. The key symbolizes the key to accepting the life how it is and ability to enjoy it. In stomach of Zhurshch you can see the Kuzheshu-fish, who was got down by Zhurshch just out of fun. But don t worry, it is absolutely not dangerous for the magic fish and happens not for the first time))

GhostCatcherDesigned7
Ghost Catcher (stringed) is a traditional instrument of Kuzhebar people
(South Siberia). It is a kind of mouth bow, but unlike other mouth bows
it has little fingerboard and 2 strings, so it is possible to play melodies
on it strumming the strings by right hand, and pressing the strings to the fingerboard by left hand. It is also possible to play on it with a stick, this technique reminds the berimbao playing. The instrument should be placed in front of the mouth and modulated like a jaw harp. 
GhostCatcherDesigned3  

This model of the Ghost Catcher is covered with symbols believed to be
a protection by hunting the ghosts on two sides of the instrument
and presenting a mosquito on its third side.

Human visual sense is adopted to the human environment but if you are going to be able to see in the world of spirits you might need another sight ability. So says kuzhebarian folk belief. And the point is not in your disability to see anything in the spirits world, but in the sense to understand what you have seen, because in the world of spirits rules a different interpretation system. Kuzhebarian tales say that the Goor-Bird can bring this special sense to humans. To get it one just should go to the sacred Gurgang Tree to spend the night over there and to play a special song on the jaw harp during the twilight hour.

The Kuzheshu-Fish was often honoured with special songs in Ancient Kuzhebar. When somebody wanted to know something about relatives or friends who were far away, he sang a question-song to Kuzheshu.
Kuzheshu-Fish knew everything what had even happen under or above the earth. It lives in water and all secrets and mysteries, which are kept in rivers, lakes, seas and oceans, in ground waters and waterfalls, in rain, fog, steam and even in tears of humans and animals were for it easy accessible.
