the artist mapped the senses, reality, and wanderings of all these human beings who have gone to the unknown through the dramatic situation of their homeland. He used the memory of these displaced people to produce a powerful work, full of emotion, not without poetry to pay tribute and testify to them. By facing all these exiles, he restored his dignity and reminded us that the history of the world is made of exiles, immigration, tragedy, suffering, and hope.
