what I want for 2016

 

The central figure is a woman, quite large, dominant in size and proportion. She is the motherland - she weeps as she holds an infant, the symbol of hope. But the infant is dead - it represents lost hope. The female figure on the right side is a victim of rape; there is an infant clinging to her. On the left side is a man, still alive, looking confused and disoriented - despair on his face. The young boys are dead - representing the youth the coutry lost. The dead man lying in front portrays the elderly, who were caught in the battle.

What I want for 2016? Less of this….a lot less.

Peace.
