“In this piece, I wanted to demonstrate the different voices for Tibetan independence and protest against Chinese authority. I painted the Dalai Lama, the religious leader of Tibet who vouches for cultural autonomy of Tibet and wants to create a peaceful relationship with China. To his left is the self-immolation of a Tibetan monk who acts is desperation to protest Chinese authority. To the Dalai Lama’s right is a protest of the young and modern organization, Students for a Free Tibet, where complete independence from China is wanted. All three entities have been muffled by the Chinese government, yet they persist while pursuing issues differently for contradicting reasons.” Sowang Kundeling
