each one of the artists used 50cm by 35cm fiber-glass eggs as their canvas to interpret the concept of eternal youth transformation and new beginnings.

“it is necessary to move away from the routine in search of renewal innovation and development. the participating artists showed their solidarity with children with serious illnesses who need medical psychological and humanitarian support regardless of their faith language or race” shaikh nahyan said urging for promoting the culture of giving in order to contribute to the alleviation of calamities facing humanity today.
