Syria is currently encountering exceptional circumstances of wars and woes that have not been witnessed before in this century where it's similar to what has happened in Europe during the period of World War I and II. This war ,despite of its harshness, has produced a new generation of artists that their suffering is reflected in their artistic works.

The elements of the painting consist mainly of a human revelation similar to the suggestion of Edward Munch's scream. This scream came as a result of a possible treachery caused by the black wolf at the right of the painting, while the lines of the sky on the right side of the painting, although clear, but the strange clouds coming from the left to disturb them. Trees and grasses in the ground are swaying in tune with these strange clouds. A mass of lines originates in the highway, widening as it approaches the eye of the beholder, forming a linear perspective.
The technology used in this painting is the prominent printing of wood linocut in black and white and measuring 30/30 cm on canson paper and the print number 3/5. White, strongly express the depth of the anxious mental state
