The Syrian civil war in March 2019 had a great impact on me, and this work was influenced by it. The shocking, sensitive images of children killed in the war circulated on news channels and social media deeply affected my mind. I created the headless hollow children in their playing positions, as if they are playing with their lives on the battlefield and for this society where they are just worthless bodies.
