The idea was born from a trip to Canada in Montreal. At the train station to visit the dome, there were walls full of mosaic art. Full of orange, yellow, and green tones casting an afternoon light on the floor. Not from the fluorescent light but the street sidewalk iron bars, very enchanting. Moreover, the USA flag model came from Jasper Johns, an American painter, sculptor, and printmaking artist. Transforming images from sources is recharging along with a past project in mind. Furthermore, for this reason, a political statement has many points to consider for its content. Then, in the technical aspect, it urges to alter the color. In either case, the stripes of white and blue changed. In general, the whole image where the flag with patterns rest. Green depicts fertile ground; also, the whole forest means abundance. Underneath the banner in the gold ground full of Maya and Aztec symbols rest Latin America in turmoil. However, not necessarily in chaos, for the depiction is suitable to admire. Full of ancient history, and gold resources and yet not able to overpass its cross. In addition, crows are flying into the light, symbolizing the people. For this reason, unable to cross the wall, some may die of starvation, drowning to find freedom. Thus, not leaving behind the smuggling of drugs in the middle of the need of the people and the lord drugs creates more problems. Further, then everybody pays for it, and deportation is inevitable.
Moreover, now clear what the message is. This depiction represents the wall between the USA, Latin America, and other settlers. Consequently, it generates more income for impresarios in the labor areas. For others, a thread. In conclusion, the problem is themselves. The government has never ceased to steal, for their selfishness does not let them see the future of their citizens. In short, some people may meet to face their demise on the road to freedom.
