About the Artwork
Based on the Maldivian folk story, Dhon Hiyala and Alifulhu.

She told Alifulhu, “I will rather die than let this cruel demon of a man take me away again!” “And before Alifuḷu could catch her, Hiyalā jumped into the ocean. Alifuḷu also sank along with his Doṅ Hiyalā’s body until they both were lost in the blue depths.

Thus were the faithful loving couple reunited at last and no one would be able to separate them again” - Xavier Romero-Frias, Dhon Hiyala and Alifulhu, Folk Tales of the Maldives, 2012.
