Bucephalas getting a helping "hand"

When the Skopje regime decided to promote its locally produced ethnogenetic myth, and put it out with a bang for world consumption, they created bronze and marble statues to solidify a mythical perception of descent from Alexander the Great's ancient Greek Makedones, while holding on to the medieval legacy of the Czar Samuil of the Bulgarians.

They could never have imagined how the two competing legacies will get along.

In this untouched photo by TAXALIA (of Macedonia, Greece) we see the Bulgarian Czar Samuil  practicing "cheiropractic" (from cheir~hand in Greek) "manipulation" (from manus~hand in Latin) to make sure Alexander's horse Bucephalas is kept excited and upstanding!
