Why this is a
Masterpiece

Mongolian artist, B. Sharav displays individual style, personal vision, exceptional technique, and a synthesis of artistic influences in his works. His masterpiece ‘One day of Mongolia’ portrays social life and conditions of nineteenth century Mongolia from historical, ethnographic, and religious perspectives.

History of the Object
From the Khangai (mountainous) landscape to the Gobi Desert, the nomadic lifestyle and a range of ceremonies and rites are vividly depicted. In prolific scenes from Mongolian daily life, a wedding party moves in a procession, a daughter-in-law is welcomed by her new family, a woman gives birth, and a funeral is followed by internment of the deceased in a remote place. The artist employs a deft combination of classical and realistic styles to render a variety of animals and natural environments.
