Description: This piece seems to be Akhmal stating his love for depictions of robots and war machines in pop culture, utilising popular characters from both sides of the hemisphere — the American Optimus Prime and the Japanese Gundam — and the helicopters bring to mind television shows “Blue Thunder” and “Airwolf”. Boyhood is celebrated, with the shows most boys grew to love.
