solamente manos, solamente esperanza. ~Inspired by El Norte
Some might or have already experienced being kidnaped, robbed, mutilated, or raped in their journey to a better life. Through this painting, I wanted to illustrate pain considering that many will only know this feeling until they have finished their journey. However, there's beauty within their pain, the beauty of hope because hope is what keeps many going until the end, which is why I decided a butterfly to illustrate that. The hands are to acknowledge that many will still be hands, tools for work. However, their wouldn't be since their parents risked it all for them to have a brighter future.
