I, II and III, IV, V and VI , art in numbers II and III is the work of Erin Currier. Art in numbers Iv, V and VI is the work of Eric Drooker.
Incredibly iconographic. Fabulous art work. Thanks Heart!
Powerful graphics – and they speak TRUTH.
Maybe it is because I am a Western woman, but I especially respond to the one in which we are crucified on our uterus and ovaries and the one in which we, tiny and relatively insignificant in patriarchy, with no tools except our bare hands, struggle to push the gigantic, all important FETUS to the top of the hill.
Branjor, I felt the same way. 🙂
The fetus being male, of course.
After that, I respond most to the woman sitting in the snow covered by a burqa with her (possibly sick?) child, while well dressed and relatively wealthy looking men just walk by her.
Wow. Mind blowing, esp the last.
That last one is fabulous. As is the first, in a completely different way.
Kudos for VI. Big time.
Wow. The first one is so sad and frustrating. IIRC those women are often widows who cannot work by law and are thus forced to silently beg (by their mere appearance – talking to unknown men is punishable by death) on the streets. The others I don’t get, but the sixth one. My first thought was “Nailed to the cross!”. It so captures the Christian mindset of the “proper” role of women. Is there a way to get a print of it?
Stunning, thank you. I knew the last one but not the others.
