Every where the Afghan child looks he sees conflict, he sees a threat. Imagine living your whole life with that fear. I can not begin to imagine it. I wanted to show an Afghan child proud of his heritage, proud of his country and his people yet if you look closely into his eyes you see what he sees which is the “Man”, the threat. I wanted to show this threat in every other square in the painting, you pick up a card and is it a good or bad card, you walk on a path and is it a safe or unsafe path These questions forced upon a child whilst his childhood slips away.
