Painting, Political / Social, Oil, Canvas, 160x200cm, 2010
The latest Cambodiaís war crimes tribunalís news and a travel to Angkor gave me an obsession about prosecutors and innocents. I had a vision of too young Khmer soldiers with Kalashnikovs between sculptures of the powerful god Ganesha and Apsara-dancer. A girl-soldier imitated her. No witnesses, only a serpent-like hand in typical dance pose, to stop the time and change the situation.
