The artwork is about the transformation of schoolgirl to terrorist since some of the girls have been reported to be acting like terrorists.  Detail shows rape, pregnancy and beheadings.  The “gun” is made from scraps of the artist’s discarded drawings -- what she considers her notes -- cut like the holes are in the edges of notebook papers.  The gold star is two-toned like bullets and symbolic of a wedding ring since the girls have all been married off.  The right “edge” is color photos collaged and printed and cut like the edges of a notebook as well.  They are the images the artist studied while making the artwork.
