“A long and sinuous Silk Road unites all our cultures, a road full of colors, hardships, and hopes.  If given the chance to travel this road over and over again, overlapping images would melt into a warm human fabric, full of labor, sweat and dreams.  This fabric inspires my work.  Its resilience is my hope for a common road into a harmonious future.” Ellie Perla
