This stunning work that departs from Min’s signature of Burmese monks clad in yellow or red robes in motion towards their destination. Still encapsulating the tranquillity that becomes the artist’s works, here, a striking ombre of electric blue sweeps across the canvas, with an intriguing relief symbol or object at the heart of the artwork. While the significance behind the painting is unbeknown, one might assume that it is associated to the Burmese culture or the Buddhist philosophy (Min Wae Aung’s belief).
