"Turpan" portrays a Uighur boy carrying his baby brother on his lap against the backdrop of an ancient city. Turpan is one of the oldest and most well-preserved cities along the ancient Silk Road. Painting this picture is like walking into history, where generations upon generations of inhabitants have lived in this region, and continue to flourish today.
