Genocide

genocide cropped 3

This is a charcoal on paper drawing.  It was inspired by my desire to depict all forms of genocide for the atrocities that they are.  Genocide is a despicable crime against humanity that is often justified by the perpetrators.  Sadly, genocide is often repeated throughout history, and no group of people seems immune to being either the victims or the persecutors.

This drawing was made circa 2008.  I am posting it now because I am currently working on a 5′ x 4′ companion painting for this piece.  I will post pictures when it is complete.
