I selected this visualization of Pakistani Muslim League-Nawaz (PML(N)) supporters' visualization of Imran Khan as Shiva and his political party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), as Hindus for the following reasons:
The image is rooted in the visual aesthetics of the region, in particular Hindu iconography and politicians' likenesses.
The image carries the tensions of the relationships between religious minorities and electoral politics in the region.
The image offers a complex melding of visuals to get some insights into the relationship between religious minorities and electoral politics in the region.
The image has multiple significations that point to questions of containment and excess in images.
