Among the series of works inspired after the visit to the Fistula Hospital in Addis Ababa, in 2008.
The girls coming out of surgery- their face and eyes tell their story, as they lay on the hospital bed.
The lack of colors in the painting shows the gravity of the problem.
A round face inside the triangle of the hospital bed,
and a diagonal black line in the background to symbolize 'STOP' -
Stop early marriage! Stop obstetric fistula!
