DESCRIPTION

The historic "Children of Gaza" has been selected as a finalist in the 3rd Toolip International Art Contest.

I saw a Facebook photo of children in a war zone and couldn't get it out of my mind. I started exploring the subject, and the profusion of material spanning time and culture overwhelmed me. Violence against children has been with mankind for ages and is a shameful testimony to the uglier part of our nature. The sculpture is not a political statement. I wanted to honor children, the most vulnerable, helpless victims subjected to the atrocities of wars, violence, cruelty, harm, neglect, or abandonment, regardless of creed, color, or nationality
