This function of art is deemed "Art for Commemoration." As the title claims, this function of art is preformed to help aid the memory of those who have past before us, as well as to strive and keep their memories alive today. Commemoration pieces can take place in many forms, for example, an artist can paint a picture of the assassination of a great leader which helps people remember the sadness of his/her passing, or the artist can take a different route and depict a memory from a famous temple or monument. This specific artwork however, I believe was painted to commemorate the loss of nature. Whether or not the people in the painting live off of the wilderness remains a mystery, but the expression of sadness and complete misery heavily rests on that little girl's face. This specific expression directed me to believe that whatever it was that burned down, had a deep and powerful meaning towards that little girl.
