Mural Friendship Mound
(Three Sisters)
Exhibition Bureau /
Polish Modern Art Foundation,

Warsaw, Poland, 
The mural depicts the Three Sisters mound – a monument erected at the junction of the borders of Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. Until 2013 (the beginning of the conflict in the region in connection with the annexation of the Crimea and the beginning of hostilities in eastern Ukraine), this was a direct symbol of the sisterhood of the three peoples. Borders were opened near the kurgans, annual cultural festivals of three countries were held.

On the image, the barrow is represented as a pie, a third of which is already cut off.

Today the monument is heavily destroyed. In 2019, the Belarusian authorities made another peacekeeping decision to restore it as a symbol of friendship between nations and hope for ending the conflict.
