While stating the detailed information about this incredible collaboration they mentioned the specifications and key features of the artwork.
“The wall has been divided into two sections. The part of the wall dedicated to showcasing Sri Lankan heritage has been adorned with the Lord Buddha stupa discovered in Taxila and Mohen-jo-Daro; an important region during the Indus Valley Civilization. Also, the Sri Lankan side displays its cultural heritage like the national flower Lotus, an important landmark of Independence Memorial Hall, and its national animal, the Chicken.” “The Pakistani side of the wall showcases Pakistan’s historic and cultural heritage like Faisal Mosque, Taxila city, the country’s national flower jasmine and the national bird, Chakoor. The center of the wall has been painted with Pakistani and Sri Lankan flags,” they added further. Team Phool Patti have also won various national and international awards and certificates for their efforts to promote the soft image of Pakistan globally.
