Merantai Rajawali

Merantai Rajawali literally translates ‘to chain the hawk’. The hawk has always been described by the Malays as a bird with ego. The black bold paint strokes portrayed here are seemingly abounding the charcoal human figure. Perhaps it is the reflection of the artist to keep our pride and ego under wraps before we are enslaved completely like the gold that envelops the human figure.
