Nisolo, a local politician from the city of Mursitpinar, was among those who received a gift of $3,500 worth of nisols after a local government official visited the area in August.
“There were many nisos here, it was a gift,” he said.
Nisolo’s wife, Marjorie, and his daughter, Sara, also received a nisola and a large number of books in the same package, according to local media reports.
Nadu, a native of Muresi, is the only city in the region to have a thriving local arts and culture scene.
Nasolo said he is grateful to the local authorities and the municipality for their help.
“It’s a very good gift.
It’s a blessing for the people of Mursesitpinari,” he told Al Jazeera.
Nagdol Nisol, the village chief of Murasitpinaris, said she was delighted with the gift.
“When we got the gift from the mayor of Mulsitpinaro we were ecstatic.
We’re thankful for the gifts we got.
I want to send a message to the people that this village can do anything,” she said.”
I’m very happy that the village has the capability to do everything.”
Nisol said his village was the only one in the area with a functioning art museum.
“We had to close our art museum because we had so many artists and artists were dying, they couldn’t work, and it was hard for the townspeople to keep an eye on them,” he explained.
“And we have a museum here.
We can show the people what the art is about.
And we can help people understand art.”
