The choice of colours in this painting is in stark contrast to the severity of the topic portrayed. The iconic barbed wire is quickly noticed despite the neon disguise.
The birds have taken place on the wire – to bring comfort and because a message of help has been sent out.
The frightened children behind the wire could use a mother’s love, a mother like the one on the other side of the wire with a child on her arm.
