At the center of the composition there is a triptych "The meeting of Flora", in which it (Flora) met the young people of our time, to the left there is the Europe depicted in the image of a lady from the modern epoch, astonished by appearance of a contemporary girl. To the right there is the East, depicted in Japanese national clothes.

The diptych is a dialogue of cultures, continuity and interpenetration. In the West there is ancient Greece and Gothic. In the East - the Egyptian and Arab culture.
