Mother's Waiting For the Bomb
For women of all time
For those who had no voice when wars began or ended,
For the women who waited in silence for their sons, husbands, fathers and brothers to return.
For those who suffered pillage and rape in silence and defeat.
Where are the women of Lysistrata?
Has her spirit vanished forever?
1. Michelangelo's PIETA - Depicts a woman's heart at a time of destruction.
2. The columns, crescent moon, serpent and star are all female symbols. (Note broken column)
3. The Latin words across the woman's band mean:
"Mutato nomine de te fabula narratur"
"With the name changed, the story belongs to you."
