As Pure As Fresh Snow
As Pure As Fresh Snow (Quote by Daisaku Ikeda on the Topic of Violence Against Women; Photo credit Shutterstock)
Graphite on paper
22 ½ x 30 ¼ inches
I dedicated this drawing to rape survivors in Portugal and around the world. The graphite drawing is a snow landscape with the words "No matter how badly you have been hurt you remain as pure as fresh snow" in the center. This is a quote by the Buddhist philosopher Daisaku Ikeda from a dialogue titled You Are the Hope of the World, that he had with youth representatives from the United States on violence against women.
