[Artist's comments]Summarized
Their clothes ripped to shreds, their skin hanging down
On the riverbank I saw figures that seemed to be from another world. Ghost-like, their hair falling over their faces, their clothes ripped to shreds, their skin hanging. A cluster of these injured persons was moving wordlessly toward the outskirts.
