Mongolian women by the painter Zayasaikhan Sambuu (Zaya)

The great painter Zayasaikhan Sambuu, aka Zaya, invites us to travel around the art and culture of Mongolia through his paintings. Once we have accepted this tempting invitation, we can only admire the beauty of the vivid colors, awesome lines and strong structure on his canvases. Walking across the bridge between old and new art, we can find scenes of ancient daily life, echoes of his nomadic, Central Asian roots, themes of Tibetan spirituality and traditional Japanese techniques.

Many of Zayas’ paintings depict noble or royal Mongolian women, all with costumes and hair styles drawn from traditional fashion designs of Mongolian nomadic aristocracy. These figures are often accompanied by wild animals such as snow leopards or wolves .
