This marble sculpture was inspired by the real story of an Iraqi eight-year old child named Ali, who was the victim of a bombing attack that killed all his family members and left him without arms. The rough chisel marks are not a mannerism or signs of an unfinished work, but they actually represent the burned skin of the victim.
