Eagle Huntress 

 Aishoplan Nurgaiv is a 13 year old Kazakh, nomad girl.

As I watched the documentary I found the bond Aishoplan and her father shared was beautiful and touching.

My immediate desire was to capture her expression of innocence, pride, beauty,her trust and determination, on canvas.

The narrative of Aishoplan and her father stayed prominent as I painted her and her companian the Golden Eagle.

Zaya, of Faith and Hope
