Hulp

(Help)

Who among us is not dependent on any type of help? This drawing unites nine forms of help.

The drawing hides the face of an individual, that could be any of us.

The eyes are part of four banknotes representing almost all major currencies all over the world. Under the nose we have two main characters united, namely the large Red Cross symbol (+) and the big help sign (H). Both stand for medical assistance and intervention assistance. Both form an open mouth calling for HELP.

The hair represents the cosmic light departing from the eye of god that shines down over the city. The light rays along with the city and its containing mosque and church stand for spiritual help. The Masonic symbol in the eyes of God stands for architectonic assistance.

At the bottom right we have a flashing light which stands for police assistance and a doctor symbol which stands for medical help. Above, we have a pile of coins with the IMF sign which stands for monetary help all over the world.

On the left we have a weighing scale that represents judicial assistance.

The diagonal lines that cross the drawing at the top and the bottom stand for prison. Help to maintain order.

That means, whether we like it or not we are dependent daily on various types of help.
