Cage of life
In this painting Aziz has tried to show a king fishing . The fishes represent the people.The king has kept all the humans inside a invisible cage that only he can see and the fishes are not aware of them(humans)and is using them to get power and Abuse them by using money to control them.The invisibility of the cage represents that this has happened since a long time ago and it still carries on, it also shows that people are very attached and dependent on money and they would do almost anything for it.The people are not aware of the invisible cage around them .They are trapped and their lives depends on money and the king's demands.This also shows that humans can fall into trap easily for money or demands of powerful people.The atmosphere seems very dull except of the king who is fishing on the cage showing he is very authoritative and also much more in a better lifestyle then the rest of the surroundings.The king is the only thing that stands out showing his power while the fictional cage surrounding the fishes which represent humans and the fishes seem less important and almost invisible to the viewer.
