Genghis Khan. 2008, fireclay.

“Genghis Khan was a really great leader and builder. Many of his laws could live on now. To destroy the pride of the khans, he forbade the acceptance of lavish titles. Religious tolerance and free will were observed, so that only love for God would be confessed. The death penalty was intended for spies, false witnesses, sorcerers, and moneylenders. In order to eradicate drunkenness, Genghis Khan rebelled against the use of alcohol. There are decrees to eliminate excessive prejudices and to develop hospitality among the nomadic population and provide security during the passage of large possessions of the empire. (Roerich MK Inviolable).
