 Nguyen Minh Tan(Vietnam)

The Golden Past / 2016 / oil on canvas / 216cm×212cm



Originated in China, the Silk Road has a long history, spanning thousands of years to grow and prosper. It connects Asia and Europe through economic and cultural ties. Now it still continues to further develop through various forms around the world. Camel team as the main image of the ancient Silk Road was placed in the center position, a big hump turned into a meandering Great Wall, carrying the important task of the Chinese civilization and prosperity. While the white sail and compass, compared to the yellow desert, add a touch of blue. They not only complete the connection between the East and West on the sea but also are the symbols for precious memories of the past and infinite possibilities in the future.
