Childs Sorrow

Artwork by Arabang Raditapole

Painted onto a 102cm by 102cm gallery wrapped canvas. 

My painting is of a girl from Ethiopia, Suri tribe. Her ear lobes are stretched out where ear plates would go. Sometimes to beautify themselves for marriage, most women have their bottom teeth removed and their bottom lips pierced, then stretched.
