Story about the ART:
This piece takes as a starting point the Surprise Boxes, those that when moving the crank comes a doll driven by a spring that surprises and awakens children's laughter.
But this surprise box holds a reality in which many children live whose countries are at war.
Four children's drawings adorn this box, and tell a story, talk about war, flight, glimpse of hope, fall into abandonment.
But a child does not stop dreaming, and the threads that bind him to reality let them fly so he can continue playing.
Our child is a puppet of war.
