I have to say this was a very personal project for me. I am a survivor, so I know how your life can be changed in a instant at the hands of a stranger.
The left hand figure represents the murdered women and the right hand the missing. These are done on brain tanned pigment painted moose hide, using cut 13/0 charlottes and also 24 K. gold and Sterling silver plated beads.
I wanted the scene to give the feeling of the darkness these women have had put upon them. And that their souls are now in the heavens.
