news and works in progress from Shaun Tan
Great! I'd love to read a book with this picture as an illustration!
So meaningful ...in war situations even angels are starving to death...we all are living proof in this book ...it's us from confusion to nothingness ...RESIST!
That's a fascinating interpretation. I personally imagine the 'angels' are powerful entities caught up in their own selfish obessions, to the detriment of everyone else.
I have the same feeling about angels but maybe also human nature is so unconsciously tired of his own heavy terrestrial selfishness that it need to look above hypocritically for some magical answers able to fix everything ...naaah...wont work either,so? WAKE UP!
It's also interesting the extent to which war is inspired by great abstractions of ideology, rather than the actual needs of men, women and children. These 'great' ideas battle about it the clouds, ultimately amounting to nothing, but killing recklessly in the process.
Yeah...To me these "great abstractions of ideology"are the most disgusting because they make people not to be aware of the actual suffering of the human race and validate the idea that killing is fine no matter what,tragic coldness and we are in the 21st century , right?right.
Pretty much. It's that amnesiac effect, which we see in full swing at the moment, that makes our era what a future anthropologist might call the dark ages. If there are any future anthropologists!
what a powerful image, beautiful
