“Omen is an illustration prophesizing the end of the military regimein Burma. It is an exact copy of the general’s cap worn by Senior General Min Aung Hlaing, except for the Burmese text below the crest. This is a pejorative term in Burmese implying relations between the general and his mother.
Omen is meant as an explicit insult to the military and a will to destroy them. All those in Myanmar who voted in multiple elections to gradually lessen the military’s influence by supporting democratically elected leaders are angry beyond measure that not only was the election result of 2020 denied to them, but also their leaders imprisoned, and untold numbers of peaceful protestors have been imprisoned and killed for defying the institution which has taken away their freedom.”
