Kenzhekei. Illustration for A. Nurpeisov's book Blood and Sweat. 1980–1981 yrs.
The entire space of the composition is occupied by the lighted profile of a middle-aged female Kazak woman, against the background of a dark space on which the silhouette of a camel can hardly be guessed. The contrast of a lightface with a dark background creates a feeling that the very face of this woman is the source of this amazing light.
