The Refugee crisis is a world-over phenomenon no one wants to interfere with and everyone knows about. It’s about people of poverty, displaced nationalities and rejected cultures.

Here in the faceless sculpture, covered only by hardened marble, the isolated figure silently reposes.

For me, it is a revelation of the starkness of the solitary refugee, caught at the crossroads of despair and the beginnings of new found hope represented by the blanket of succor because someone has peered into his corner and begun to listen.
