I Cried for Shoes

Coloured zinc etching, 6 x 8 cm
“I cried because I had no shoes until I saw a man who had no feet.” (Helen Keller)
The burgeoning cells and promisecandle of meditation encourage us to think positively like Helen Keller whose blindness did not deter her from great works. Instead of lamenting our role as victims, like two of the figure’s heads, we can open our eyes and hearts like the central head, break our isolating salvationchains and stretch out towards needy hands.
