Australia: "Uncompromising Courage" Art Exhibit Held in Sydney (Photos)
(Clearwisdom.net) On February 16, 2005, the "Uncompromising Courage" Art Exhibit was held in the York Hotel in downtown Sydney. More than 40 works of art by Falun Gong practitioners were displayed.
Explaining the artworks
At the entrance of the exhibition hall, a painting named "Banner" was displayed. In the painting, a mother was sewing a banner while her lovely child was listening to Master Li's lecture audio quietly. The whole scene was very peaceful, which attracted many visitors' special attention. The exhibit consisted of five parts: "Buddha Light Illuminates Heaven and Earth," "Assimilate to the Fa and return to One's True Self," Testimony of Righteous Faith," "Spreading the Truth and Calling for Justice," and "Justice Prevails."
From the first painting, "Vow" to the last one, "Drum," the 40 plus artworks vividly depict how gods have come to the earth to fulfill their prehistoric vows as well as practitioners' joy of obtaining Falun Dafa, their unyielding courage despite the brutal persecution, their global effort to spread the truth worldwide, and the time when all the perpetrators are brought to justice.
The paintings touched many visitors. A young fellow in his mid-20s brought his friends to the exhibit in the afternoon after he himself viewed the paintings in the morning. In the exhibit log, he wrote: "It is so touching..." He also asked for Falun Dafa materials. He said that he wanted to learn the exercises and he would show the materials to his mother, who is Chinese.
Some practitioners with good English skills showed visitors around. One practitioner commented: "We actually didn't need to say much as they already learned a lot after they viewed the paintings, which are so vivid."
Some visitors asked for extra copies of the exhibit flier, as they wanted to share them with their colleagues and friends. The exhibition in the York Hotel will last 12 days, from 9am to 9pm. A press conference will be held on February 25.
