T HIS SECTION PROVIDES HIGHLIGHTS of Alexei Alexeev's research travels and his exploration of museum collections, archaeological sites, and religious complexes in quest of artefacts featuring ophidian iconography. It focuses on visual records, with the textual component limited to brief descriptions and references. All figures are prepared individually and come in one standard size (930 x 620 pixels) and two chromatic versions: black-and-white (default) and full-colour. The contents are divided into six specialized sub-sections, organized according to the geographic location.

All travels are categorised according to the geographic area covered in a particular country and quantity and quality of the generated photographic content from locations of interest:
