JAWA EL KHASH: THE UPPER SIDE OF THE SKY

PRESS RELEASE

Just like the monarch butterfly, I too am an immigrant that has migrated 2000 miles away from home, looking for a place to rest. Just like the caterpillar that becomes a monarch, to protect my self from predators, I match my skin colour to the same shade of green of my milky plant, to render myself invisible. As I shed my skin, I will do it again, and again, and again.

It’s Nice That
