Many of the works tell a story of the war that tore through the small town of Pisky in Donetsk region. That story often starts with a local church that has been hit by bullet and mortar fire from every angle. The church is featured in most of these artworks.

A painting of bandura, an ancient Ukrainian instrument, is also included in the collection. This particular bandura was found in Pisky. The painters say the instrument is now an essential part of the exhibit.
