Mysterious Undersea by Dr. Mahima Gupta 

By art critic James O’Connon
Anthropomorphic beings exist since ancient times. We often believe that they can help us. But do they really can? If you believe it, then, I guess, yes. What if you don’t? This becomes important in a metamodern society when we long for intimacy, closeness, but at the same time, we realize that everything is just irony and destruction. Mahima Gupta believes that there is a bright side of everything and what about you?
