Mail Art. The main image is a card of Musa's painting L'Art du deminage (2004) that references J-F's Millet's The Gleaners (1857); the card is grounded by flower pots of collaged stamps. In his practice, Musa makes repeated use of The Gleaners as a metaphor for the plight of society's poorest people.
