Her eyes are open and sad and staring somewhere into the past. She’s touching the bed of Napoleon at the Musée des arts et Métiers in Paris. Her father was killed in the forced labor camps of the Khmers Rouges in Cambodia. Outside the window: the light of dawn. In this painting, Mokoh mysteriously painted a darker shade of brown around the eyes of the young girl; as if she is wearing zorro-like glasses. It makes her look gloomy; maybe thinking of her darkest past.
