At the beginning of the world, animals had no patterns, neither did manul, which made it feel quite bored until it found a colored stone, and its heart began to beat strongly. So it started to look for colored stones for making pigments. And this was noticed by another animal that wanted manul to draw some patterns on it. However, manul didn't want to use its own pigments, so it just painted it randomly with some mud, then the world's first leopard came out, which attracted other animals to come to it, and their new images shocked the world. Later, manul started to think about the suitable patterns for itself, it painted itself with the most beautiful colors and patterns, But in the end, no one saw it, because its colored patterns were too full which made it look like a gray stone...However, when manul looked at the moonlight shining wilderness, its heart started beating again...
