Saddo himself is weird by the believed of death. He wanted to see the death so he involved it by religious stories folklores. His desire to see death provoke him to attempt to discover different ways to see death as a national, an intimidating believed or come to life. Death is observed and share out with dissimilar values, cultures and religions. It can be separated from rebirth and certainty revival. Personifications are illustrated in the show, “A Stranger in the Garden” where Saddo tries to put forward the whole secret. There are many ways to recognize it and observe it. The whole thing has been described with full sensitivity, intelligence and observation.
