Exhibit “THE SUICIDE DREAMER” The sculpture is related to some black magic, through which death also can be controlled. Suicide is a tragic death for everyone in any civilized society. A person gets suicidal when he/she loses their hope in life or when their dream gets shattered. Further, initiation of black magic in anyone’s life destroys the person financially, career wise, health wise, creates bad luck and dreams causing broken relationships in marriage or separation. When this black magic effect takes place, it is able to use the person’s energy and force to create a suicidal dream by controlling their mind completely. This black magic still exists in some tribal societies, and influences the people in those societies. This sculpture is based on how the impact of black magic can create a suicidal tendency in a person in their dream. The exhibit is one metre high made of scrap metal and took five days to make. Dimensions 1m high and lifesize
