Personally signed by the artist
Frank used thick textured paint and paste in this portrait to bring more depth to the painting. Furthermore, several parts were painted with metallic acrylic paint which gives a very nice luxurious effect and in the right light a brilliant shine. Finally, the portrait was varnished with high-gloss varnish for years of protection. The edges are painted along so the painting does not need to be framed and can be hung immediately to enjoy. The painting is 1.50 long and 1 meter wide. The thickness is 4 cm.
The painting process
THE NOMADIC CULTURE IN MONGOLIA
Mongolian nomadic culture is a rich and fascinating tradition dating back more than a thousand years. The nomadic lifestyle is a way of life embedded in Mongolian history and still practiced by many Mongolian families today.
Mongolian nomads live in harmony with nature and their environment, and have a deep respect for the animals and the land on which they live. Their lifestyle is based on raising livestock and moving their herds from pasture to pasture to graze. This way of life has led to a strong bond between the nomads and their animals, who are often considered family members.
An important aspect of Mongolian culture is the emphasis on hospitality and food sharing. Guests are always welcomed with open arms and the best food available, often from their own herds. Sharing food is an essential part of nomadic culture and symbolizes the common bond that nomadic families have with each other and with their environment.
The traditions of Mongolian nomads are deeply rooted in their language, dress and music. The Mongolian language, known for its rich poetic traditions, is still the main language of the nomads. The traditional clothing of Mongolian nomads, made of wool and leather, is durable and functional and is often decorated with colorful embroidery and patterns that reflect local culture and history. Music is also an important part of Mongolian culture, with traditional instruments such as the morin khuur, a two-stringed violin, and the tsuur, a flute made of bamboo.
Although Mongolian nomadic culture has adapted to modern times, the spirit and power of this tradition remains alive. The nomadic lifestyle offers an inspiring example of sustainable living in harmony with nature and community. Mongolian culture is a treasure trove of knowledge, experience and wisdom that can help us restore our relationship with nature and each other.
