When we went to see Ron Mueck's exhibition in Kanazawa, Sidra seemed very impressed the works. The one that got him really interested was a statue of newborn babygirl, titled 'A Girl'. He kept asking about the umbilical cord and why there are blood all over her, and I tried to explain as much as I could.
After the we got home, Sidra drew these interpretations on Ron Mueck's works. Some features the statue with us around it. He also drew the umbilical cord and blood on the baby statue, and penises on the naked statues. In his interpretation on 'Mask II' (it's actually a self-portrait of the artist), Sidra drew the sleeping face with smile on the face and added sun and clouds on the sky. Maybe he was imagining that it was a man sleeping happily in a shiny day.
