peace process and opposes atomic war and terrorism.

paintings which negate war and violence. One sculpture depicts two female
figures that have melted with each other due to radiation from the atomic bomb.
The sculpture is built on a small pedestal carrying a statement condemning war.
In another sculpture a Sumo wrestler, a symbol of power in Japan, is portrayed
suffering, which shows how the atom bomb destroyed life in these cities, and how
people still suffer from the after-effects of the explosion.
painting 'Buddha Under the Mushroom of Atom', the history of human barbarianism
has been told. It shows that in the beginning, human beings used to use swords
and arrows to capture territories to increase their power and wealth, depicting
how man steadily developed weapons of mass destruction and destroyed humanity
for its greed. The Buddha is painted black, giving an impression that humans are
searching for peace within conflict.
Ahmed said that World War II had
affected the world. He said, "My message is for all human beings to live in
peace and work for the betterment of humanity. The west has adopted the
