More than 1,900 visitors from 193 countries have left their mark on the painting, which showcases a prototype of Earth. The size of the canvas corresponds to the reduced physical parameters of Earth (four meters in length and 1,27 meters in width).

“The main idea of the painting is created in line with the theme of EXPO 2020 Dubai “Connecting Minds, Creating the Future.” The goal of the art project is to unite people living on our planet in one work of art located in the Kazakh Pavilion. The painting symbolizes such values as peace, unity, harmony and friendship,” reads the release.
