Margaret Hassan

(2004)


Mrs. Margaret Hassan, married to an Iraqi, had worked in Iraq for over 20 years with CARE, an organization dedicated to improving the lives of the poor and disadvantaged. She was abducted by "insurgents" and several videos were made of her pleading for life. She was coldly assassinated by her abductors. Her senseless death proves the point that "in war, it is only the innocent who suffer." She is show here holding a sacrificial lamb. Blood from another victim flows down the sides of the painting, decorated with stars and crescents
