Socialism and communism were the two highlights of the Karl Marx’s work on which we can draw the parallel to the George Orwell’s famous novel “Animal Farm”. Socialism, as I see it, is mainly people power or redistribution of wealth amongst them.

In my visual representation I attempt to use a surplus of symbolism including color usage, character representation and object placement.
