I was judged
Aziz Anzabi created "I was judged" to show that people make judgements about others without really knowing who they are. The scene is quite horrifying as the woman in the middle has no face giving her no identity. Her face is marbled and therefore she is stone like. To me this is so tragic because it shows that people are judged by everything they do, wear and are, that they forget how to show emotions or reactions to the way people/society judges them.What amazes me is that her hands are very realistic which is unexpected comparing it to her face, which is a sign that she is humane. Aziz has dressed the lady in the style of Renaissance which was influenced by Philosophy, Literature, Architecture, Theology, Science, Government and other aspects of society.The bird with a spectrum of colours flying towards the flowers represents the woman's heart and her emotions. This is ironic to me because amongst all this horrifying imagery there is still hope and an aspect of beauty which shines and captures the attention of the audience because of it's beauty and brightly used colours. Aziz has placed small details on the bird which make it more realistic and each colour is used to contrast the other. The fact that a part of the woman is peeling away suggests that this is all just a cover and the real beauty is inside people's hearts not on their outside.
