The Way Of The Morin Khuur

In this self-portrait, I delve into the Mongolian Morin Khuur's tradition, a 4000-year-old instrument. Inspired by "The Story Of The Weeping Camel," it showcases the instrument's power to soothe a mother camel, inspiring her to re-adopt her calf. This unique practice, used for generations, to this day, by Mongolian camel farmers, shows the bond between human tradition and nature.
