Proposal Synopsis: When I witnessed the invasion of Iraq on the news, my heart went out to the civilians caught in the mayhem. I identified with the mothers, sisters and grandmothers who lost their loved ones. The sculpture Iraqi Women reflects my lament for those women who have had to endure the unendurable. The bone masks cover the faceless victims of war. They also serve as a reminder of the pain of death they had to face. The woman stand and grieve in a field of bones. The sculpture was made in 2003 and is
9"wide x 4" deep x 16" high.
