Abstract/Artist's Statement

Upon close inspection, the Soviet-Afghan War exists as a struggle on two fronts. On one level, the war was a struggle between the Chinese and the Soviets as both jockeyed for power and influence in Asia. On the other level, the war was a struggle between the divisiveness of tribal identities and Pakistani attempts to impose political unity under Islam.
