The main leitmotif of the exhibition Myn Oi is the Sun. The group natured the idea of a symbol of the Sun that is the binder principle of the creative searches for some years. In the project The Sun the Uigurian painters use the image of a totem pillar as the ritual worshiping the Mankind�s Great Motherland as a symbol of the Ancient Civilization.
The six participants of the project paint two symbols (one of them is solar) located radially. The circle in the center symbolizing the Sun is free. Once the pictures completed, they are connected and raised to the accompaniment of tambourines, forming the tetrahedron pillar consisting of 12 symbols (12 is the symbol of the time cycle). The vertical line of the pillar comes up from the ancient time.
