The Turkmen sculptor presented a work in bronze that he named "good neighborliness". According to Atamamedov, depicting in a symbolic crescent-shaped way two women in national garments who hold in their hands a common cup, he wanted not only to express himself as an artist, but also talk about the national holiday of Turkmenistan - the Day of Good Neighborliness, as well as about his country's foreign policy aimed at strengthening international cooperation.

According to feedbacks from all the participants, they not only acquired new skills and got the influx of inspiration in the past month, but also expanded their knowledge in the field of fine art and got real friends.
