Maltastasis - Eric Leone
From a medical standpoint, 'metastasis' refers to the spread of cancer beyond a localised area. The illustration is a metaphor characterising the parallelism between a chest X-ray and Malta. The areas of the island which are under attack by the construction and infrastructure industries are shown the brightest, similar to how an X-ray of a lung with late-stage cancer that is typically metastasised, would present white cloudy masses in cancerous areas. The body is also depicted without a backbone, this visual element implies the lack of courage relevant authorities have to make the right decisions.
