Acrylic & Gold Leaf on Wood, 32 x 24cm
Mercy was captured in a raid on her hometown by Boko Haram militants, forcibly married and made to attend Islamic rituals. Some women were stoned to death for refusing to convert to Islam. Later she was rescued. The wires around the wood refer to her abduction. In the background the flag of Boko Haram is superimposed on that of Nigeria.
