"The facemask symbolises the breath of life. Behind the mask are shadowy nightmares of the Covid19 pandemic that haunt us," Gali says of his work. "The lights that shine through some of the shanties point to the strong faith of Filipinos. The families that look through the windows symbolize our struggle that, one day, we will heal. And the moon should always remind us - God Almighty is there to protect us."
