From the 14th to the 16th of April 2006, Falun Gong practitioners from Ukraine held an art exhibition entitled “The Path of Compassion and Benevolence” in Chernigiv, a beautiful and old city in the north of the country. The exhibition included photographs introducing Falun Gong’s spreading around the world along with sculptures and paintings by Falun Gong practitioners.
The exhibition attracted the presence of people from all walks of life in Chernigiv. Among them were actors, students, lawyers, government representatives and journalists. The art exhibition became a good chance for practitioners to tell people the truth of Falun Gong.
During the art exhibition, Falun Gong practitioners not only demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises, but also warmly explained the meaning behind every painting in detail, which aroused people’s attention and interest. One after another, people signed their names and shared their impression of the exhibition in the visitors’ book.
A student from abroad said: “Through these pictures, I have not only experienced serenity and harmony in the bottom of my heart, but also understood ancient Chinese culture brought forth by the paintings and the meaning of their beauty. It is more important that I have felt that these pictures radiate the power of compassion which makes me most pleased.”
Another student told practitioners: “These are the most stirring art pieces I have ever seen. It is as if I was enveloped in joy all over and I can’t help feeling humble and showing reverence for them.”
After seeing the exhibition, a lawyer and his child started chatting with practitioners and then bought the main book of Falun Dafa practice, Zhuan Falun, and said he would read it at home.
In the meantime, practitioners from Ukraine were interviewed by a TV Station and a local radio reporter from Chernigiv. The organiser of the exhibition said: “Through the art exhibition, we hope that more people will understand the beauty of Falun Gong and the truth of the persecution happening in China and we call on many people to help us stop the CCP cruelly killing and annihilating Falun Gong practitioners.”
Another practitioner said: “I hope that these paintings will bring everybody not only an appreciation of art and a good feeling but also understanding, support and help for us.
