In this painting Aziz has tried to show immigration problem of people from war for a better life. This work is inspired from the flow of refugees from Syria to Europe. The big black cube is a representation of the dangers the refugees face, especially those who migrate illegally to have better lives. The key is a symbolism for the better future the immigrants are running towards, unfortunately though the journey is made apparently difficult through it being guarded by a person in authority. The rhino further emphasises how despite the refuges escaping the dangers from their own country, danger is still present in the new country they have moved to e.g. racism.
