To commemorate International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women.
by Farshaad Razmjouie
Above is Woman, the creator of the world. She is chained (linked) to the world and on the other side she ignores the holy God.
The hourglass is gold symbolising that time like gold is very important and valuable for humans, and things must change soon.
The scales are representative of the the need for equality, and the massive inequalities around us now.
The hammer swings/ slams down, the power of judging to make either the right decisions or to justify the crimes.
The dice turning on the black and white board points to the importance of chance in life.
Finally the fire represents the secrets of the invisible, the universe and the things that we are yet to know.Perhaps there is no clear prediction for peace (olive tree) or humankind (woman) but I hope that even if peace seems unattainable it will happen someday.
