Continuing the ‘Puppeteer’ series, this artwork explores the stark contrast between joy and oppression. Amid a somber, murky background, the central figure—marked by dark, bold strokes—stands with arms uplifted in an expression of jubilation. This juxtaposition captures the resilience of the human spirit, triumphing over the shadowy forces that seek to constrain. The image is a poignant reflection of personal perseverance, a visual metaphor for the dance of defiance and hope that characterizes the human journey.
