This collection is inspired by the famous quote 'in such ugly times, the only true protest is beauty' by American singer and songwriter Phil Ochs. A set of four coasters and a box are hand-painted in a relief braille effect with the quotation. While the outer box reads as "in such ugly times.." each coaster carries the rest of the message "..the only true protest is beauty". The box contains a set of 4 coasters in Dark Brown, each featuring the same message. The coasters are hand-painted by traditional Papier Maché Naqqashi artisans from Srinagar, Kashmir who specialise in relief (raised) work.
