Social Paradox


In the social life that I ever encountered, there are some Muslims who work as an artifacts maker for the worship purposes of other faiths. Those things are actually prohibited in Islam. However, creating such artifacts is also a cultural heritage that had been formed in a long time and that is one of livelihoods for the makers. A laborer, wore a rimless cap and a faded pants, carving a sculpture of Ganesha which is one of the gods in Hinduism. These things are intended to deliver the paradoxical issues, as a Muslims it is the duty to stay away from the prohibition of Allah, but as an individuals it has become an instinct to work according to their interests and talents, and as a social beings which live in a communal there is a necessity in religious tolerance. This work is trying to show these issues in a dramatic scene to bring appreciator into it.
