2. Why am I here? / Zašto sam ovdje?, 2013, acrylic on canvas, 80×120 cm

I came to this world, and has it got anything by that?
I’ll leave, and will that change anything?
Oh, if one could now say, why am I here,
I, who have come from dust and to dust I return.
(Epitaph on the Azerbaijani stela from 16th/17th century)

– – –

Došao sam na taj svijet, i je li on time dobio štogod?
Otići ću, i hoće li se time izmijeniti štogod?
O, kada bi netko mogao sad reći, zašto li sam ovdje,
Ja, koji iz prašine dođoh i koji se u prašinu vraćam.
(Epitaf na azerbajdžanskom stećku iz 16./17. st.)
