The painting «The feast of the Malakans» is thought to be a part of some big creation. The family of Malakans has been ascertained – it was Samodurovs family, who has been living near Didube Bridge on Kutaisi Street. They had a ferryboat and were different from the other Malakans by their love of junketing, when the Malakans were prohibited to drink wine according to their tradition.
