This series of works specifically portrays the human behaviour of the people located at any time or any place. The process of mapping political landscapes with grotesque bodies is the core intention of this series which symbolizes the despairing of masses through communal oppression and how their souls are being battered, bruised, and tortured. The deliberate use of architectural style prompts the idea of destruction and the suppression of the downtrodden.
