The correlation between people and their spaces play a strong role to Palestinians.
The works speak about Palestinian refugees and the constant search for their homeland. In the foreground you see figures that seem lost, and in the background a visible olive tree, representative of their land that they are able to see but not return to. Moreover, in some of the works we see women standing with power, as the artist believes that women are a melting pot of society and life.
