Description:
Plaster relief with mottled pink ground, rough edges, added elements, figures and texts. Two armless male figures with skeleton-like faces are painted in black and blue and stand tightly together leaning to the right. They stand upon a ground line with red paint that looks like blood and drips to the lower edge. A cluster of five small skulls with blue plastic eyes are located at upper left with white paint dripped below. A small plastic toy arm and skull are embedded at lower right. Five texts are written in various locations on front: little eyes are seeing at top right; Acts Committed at top right corner; Hopeless Tears along right side; The bleeding Hearts, The sacred Hearts, The blessing souls, The lost souls to the right of the male figures; So Many Dreams Have Died, So Many thing said and never done at lower center.
