The Tajik nationalities are nomads who have inhibited the grasslands of northern China for generations. They are excellent riders and horse racing has naturally become a popular sport honored by the Tajiks. The exquisitely painted colors are achieved in a Mogu style [ink paintings without outlines], while the extending fine lines are desired to create the scene of riders indulging themselves in the tension of the competition. In a grandeur yet graceful grassland setting, this stunning painting brings together the dynamic aesthetics of the horses, the unrestrained forcefulness of life and the determined, intrepid personalities of the Tajik people.
