Cranes of Hope

This antique stereopticon image of a mother and her children in the doorway of their Middle-Eastern home is a grounding anchor amidst the surrounding fiery swirl.  Their faces are individual, personal, unique.  The water jug is a reminder of the simple and ordinary everyday tasks of life.  

This piece holds the tension between the metal barrier and the freely flying cranes, while we exchange gazes with this particular mother and her children.
