Excavation #8

This is a photo of my mother’s family, placed atop woven strips of fabrics to represent our Chinese and Indonesian heritage. Bhinneka Tunggal Ika is Indonesia’s official motto and is translated from Old Javanese as “Unity in Diversity.” I wanted to refer to the official motto especially when they were being discriminated against during the time this photo was taken.
