Silky’s artworks “A Reminiscence” are a cluster of 7 cow sculptures, which are a remembrance of the innocence, harmony, and purity, that living beings are born with. The purest and freest of beings get hard wired into self-complicated and constructed realities. The essence of existence in the natural state is lost in the self-built archetypal value system. The essence is lost under the layers of arrogance, unkindness, stubbornness and ultimately being inhuman…to be or not to be? – There is always an option! A cow is a living reminder for being human.
