‘Pig’, ‘Dog’, ‘Mouse’, ‘Bear’ and ‘Donkey’, these five animals, who are not the aesthetic symbol in sculpture, are deprived their five senses only left the listening (ear), and stand on the base in cast aluminum sewage. They seem as the proud sculptures stand on the square. The deprived five senses are replaced by the Trumpet - shaped mask, from which the continuously flashing Morse code is transmitted and secretly passed to the outside world: no memory, no smell, no conscious, no sights and no words, separately. These five animals are eroded so as to lose their colors, playing as the arrogant and decadent contradiction and expressing the silent conflict against the square.
