Drawing similarities between the ongoing protests in Lebanon and Iraq, Iraqi sculptor Muatasim Al Kubaisy has brought his peculiar bronze pieces to Agial Art Gallery. Titled "The Last Generals," his highly critical series presents small military and religious figures, represents as plump, deformed and malicious individuals -- the latest in a long-standing commentary on "the tyranny of murder machines" since the 2003 Iraq invasion.To break this association, Kubaisy has removed their facial features.It raises the question: Who are these figures really?"Dangerous Decisions" shows a soldier sitting on a toilet, which Kubaisy said refered to the dangerous decisions they made in the region, which have led to wars and unstable economies and have increased conservatism.
