The other elements including eagle, dragon, drones and rockets, broken statue of Buddha, the sun and moon etc gives a picture of chaos inside human minds, additionally painting himself standing still and hands raised high, he added, I want the people to think that the surprising reaction is caused by the chaos and disorder of the world leaving him questing his own identity and actions.
