Some formal systems derived their references from reality, where the artist depends on simulation depending on details similar to reality. Thus the references of the figures are derived from the culture of the society and the environment and from numerous styles and political and psychological concepts according the adopted style. This is evident in all the samples. This section also consists of a set of conclusions including: the social and political coups experienced by the artist had a motivation to retreat to oneself. It appears evidently in pursuing new mechanisms in drawing. This self- vision manifests itself due to several reasons the society has undergone.
