The artwork depicts a hand holding burning candle entwined with a mesh of barb wires ‘growing’ out from a black mound. This reminds one of the Human Rights NGO, Amnesty International logo, where they focus on protecting human rights worldwide.
* It is also a representation of his performance art where Hiah was ‘buried’ underground, with his hand holding on to the melting candle on the surface.
