the giant of kandahar 1923

First of all, a close look at where the “Giants ” legs come down , it’s right leg, from basically his knee down to the ground is non existent. It’s not possible that the little kid standing in front of that part of its leg would be able to block or cover its entire calf or bottom part of its leg. Secondly, even its left foot which is supposed to be seen is nowhere in sight. Thirdly, the giant though backing the sun has no shadow. So it is certainly the work of photoshop or user generated ai image.
