Unknown Martyrs

Acrylic & Gold Leaf on Wood, 70 x 50cm

A woman and a man are shown standing patiently, hands behind their backs, heads covered with hoods. Cross hairs from a sniper's rifle are drawn over each head, filling the breadth of their haloes. Constrained, anonymised and targeted - these are unknown martyrs. Behind them lies the flag of the United Nations. The text declares that 'Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion...'
