Artist's Description

Humans know countless defence mechanisms - armours and weapons against physical attack, huge walls and barbed wire around property boundaries to keep thieves away, immune system that fights against viruses and bacteria, ability to repress painful memories by the unconscious mind. While all are different, the goal is the same - to protect and defend by any means necessary.
