This painting stands as angry testament to the unfulfilled promises made to Maslawis about reconstruction projects. The great need caused by the destruction of the Old City in Mosul is evident in the background, yet the grotesque totems in the foreground advertise a series of failed projects that have drained time and resources away from rebuilding the City.
