In modern society, languages and ideas are used to create classifications, which sets human perceptions apart from knowledge systems, and encourages us to believe that nature and the human world are separated. As a matter of fact, human beings are simply part of nature and its processes. The artist gathers leaves and leaf veins of local plants to construct the form of a figure, attempting to engage the public in discussing the blurred boundary between the manmade and the natural through this action and the image.
