Tip-cat is a funny game which is played by children, with two pieces of wood. Nowadays, this game is played by adults who play the game with bullets and bombs. In the sea of imagination of children, the waves of the bullet vomit into their innocent worlds. This work expresses the damage that children suffer of it, and these political accounts are not finished. There is a hand stretching out from the wreckage for hope which has different dreams of every child. The main form, which consists of one-piece carved wood, encompasses children's dreams in the form of a large wave. Approximately one thousand pieces of beech wood are formed bullets and bombs were prepared by hand with lathe machine. I used gold leaf and pigment dye in different shades; I dreamed of a world without war when I was working on this piece.
