Ostracization

Abstract

The central figure is left out and being ignored by the paper playing card figures who are facing and conversing with each other . The emotions of the muscular person shows the feeling of abandonment and rage. The blazing fire has set in the background, the dinnerware has cracked open. The person with vibrant living organs represents those who feel the inequality and lack of justice from the elitist society.
