Emma Reilly, Kahzakstan 2

My name is Emma Reilly. I am 10 years old and I am from Ireland, but I have moved to Kazakhstan.  I drew this picture in springtime because there are lots of traditional holidays celebrated in the Spring. The girl in this picture is wearing traditional dress. There is a traditional instrument leaning against the tree called the dombra and on the other side is the symbol of the ram's horn which is very popular in Kazakh traditional art, and is also on the side of the flag. The Kazakh flag is blue and yellow and has the sun and a steppe eagle underneath it. The trees in bloom are apple trees; I drew them because apples are from Kazakhstan! I am happy to be in Kazakhstan because Ireland and Kazakhstan will play in the World Cup qualifier in September and I will go watch it and root for Ireland!
