Excavation #2

This also focuses on my father’s side of the family. On the right hand is an image of him, his sisters , and his aunt (behind his sister). The other two figures were the neighbors. When my father was 7, the family split up. His mother took half the kids (3 siblings) back to China. He was left in Indonesia with his two sisters. On the left is a map of China in 1941 (when the family split up). Behind are shards of glass to represent the chaos and the little boy is my father who must have felt overwhelmed by the instability. He never learned to speak Chinese and by the 1960’s the Chinese language were forbidden to be spoken/learned/read. 14502874_10153714829871595_6213744752804895403_n
