The Three Fates

This triptych was created some time ago when Pussy Riot first hit the headlines. There are three plaster panels, which reference the three women with their heads covered, then portrayed as the three fates, and finally running free with the Amnesty International candles clutched in their hands. The poses are taken from the Parthenon, where a panel depicts three fit and brave young men, I just changed them to three fit and brave young women…

The three fates, aka Pussy Riot…
