The remarkable roles of women around the globe
Global Burdens was inspired by unfortunate events that made the earth an unfriendly planet--years of wars, years of witch hunting, years of slave trade, years of racism, years of human sacrifices, years of segregation, years of colonialism, years of injustice, years of election malpractices/frauds, years of innocents behind bars, and years of jungle justices.
Non-stop wars and diseases, not to mention natural disasters that are beyond our control added salt to an injury. Who bears these burdens?
This artwork illustrates a woman gracefully bearing an oval shape object that represents the world. Inside the world are illustrations of past, present, and future:
Line 1 shows people being hanged and is followed by people of different races who are queuing to vote.
Line 2 shows fatherless children and their heroines (mothers), followed by bounded people representing the voiceless, weapons of war and destruction, and heroes and heroines disabled by war and other disasters.
Line 3 shows people behind bars (some are guilty, some are not), followed by the tools of Justice and Injustice
The four edges show beautiful patterns of leaves and water, representing a friendly environment and, more importantly, hope.
Beyond a mountain lies a valley, darkness always disappears to give room for light. Anger and depression vanish and give room for love. Hope, faith, desires, determination, and strength keep the mind from failing. In spite of disasters, there are luxuries that make life worth living, but who bears the burdens of the disasters and unfortunate events? Global Burdens says it all.
