Crib of Thornes Close Up
Crib of Thornes Close Up
Cast Glass, Cast Bronze

Thorny sticks from a rose bush create “Crib of Thorns”. A glass pillow rests alone on the bed. Twelve sets of doll hands reach out, perhaps praying or pleading for help. Tick marks line the edge of the crib suggesting the number of children that may have passed through. The bronze bars are supported by a stand made with clear glass baby doll legs, a metaphor for the fragility of the situation and the invisibility of the victims.
