This sculpture fused two cultural elements which have been lost in history.
First, the Shir Sangi is a lion that stood guard over our graves for many thousands of years. Second, the pattern on the plate (Red Rose Pattern) was very popular in the past, but has been forgotten in recent times. On the body of the lion is written “I am not here”. This is a physical manifestation of our nostalgia, our longing for all those parts of our collective past which we have lost and which we miss.
