My Birth (0.45х0.55m, canvas, oil, 2007) -

The next, seventh piece, depicts my arrival onto the planet.  Our Trans-Ili Ala-Tau Mountains, the apple fruit in the hand of my Mom signifies the city of Alma-Ata, which means “The Father of Apples”.  Previously, Alma-Ata was famous for its aromatic, sweet Aporto apples.
The apples in the garden of my father weighed up to 1 kg apiece.  They were superb!
Nowadays they lost their smell and delightful taste.
The picture was sold; it restored family relations of its new owners.  The dimensions of the picture are 0.45 m x 0.55 m.
