Sketching is an approach which is the most accessible to the essence of humanities creation. When artists develop the subjects of Xinjiang art, they use an unique artistic perspective to interpret the multi dimensional development of Xinjiang, ethnic solidarity and social harmony, in the process of social development. On the magic Pamirs, to appreciate the roof of the world, to listen to mysterious legends of the son of sun, to feel the spirit of the Tajik people which is transmitted by the eagle flutes and eagle dances, to experience the unique charm of the plateau culture… this is the complex impulse of the painters who enter the plateau.
