Layers: Someone to Look Up To

Layers: Someone to Look Up To, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. Click image to view larger.

I did this in layers. There are three layers, one with the face,one with cracked cement and one with the hand.

I was invited to produce some themed work for Vera House Women's Shelter. This is the third in the series. Posted by Picasa

But actually it is very depressing but then I suppose it is meant to be. Yuck to all her matted hair, yuck to the cement and yuck to the bloody hand. Yuck to her vacant eyes! Yuck to the person that did this to her.

Thanks for the kind comments! This is meant to communicate the terrible state of abused women and hopefully cause people to look for solutions. Mary :-D
