The Mongolian Ger

The Mongolian Ger, home to many of the Mongolians is an interesting concept. I was told that the two poles in the centre represented the Father and Mother. The hole in the centre looks towards heaven. Had wonderful moments at a Ger camp with fellow trippers on my trip to Mongolia last October. It was a first for me and the beauty of sharing a Ger with 3 other trippers was just amazing.

With an upcoming exhibition in Aug, here is one of the pieces I painted, inspired by the Ger camp which we stayed.

The word 家 is written as a “Ger” and with the ascending stroke at the end (exaggerated) to show the slopes of mountain ranges in Mongolia.

Hope you enjoy this piece!
