Labor creates art, art enriches life, and life nourishes the soul with artistic temperament and aesthetic taste. The pictures with unique style and bright colors exude a strong local flavor. The rough painting method is delicate, traditional and fashionable, and the lives of Dolan people are vividly displayed. (Correspondents: Zilalai Mahmut, Muyesar Mutalip)
