on this year's independence day, Indonesia's land is still being a victim of politicians, businessmen, and its opponent's who lust over richness, power, and spotlight in the world. sad reality when Indonesia on its 66th independence day still being raped by all of the mega-capitalist people, for its gold, culture, and woods, which they sell it to the highest bidder, without any leftover for the generations ahead in the future.
I know this perhaps only a small contribution that me and the art team can give for our nation and homeland, even not all of us born and learn to walk in Indonesia, but we all know that we love this country and don't want this country to lost its battle, but we hope, this artwork can inspire people and the generation in the future to protect our raped homeland, heal it wounds, and keep it as beautiful as the emeralds of the mother earth.
'OUR RAPED HOMELAND'
