Contemporary unframed acrylic painting.
Canvas, backing board on a handmade sturdy wooden frame.
The painting shows a torso of a figure that has a stone textured body, cracked with time.
Standing like a statue to commemorate those who braved a new world and to show the generations that followed.
The arm indicates the strength of the people who ventured across the sea to find work and build a new life.
The bridge shows the types of heavy, back-breaking work that the people endured.
The head is missing as to indicate the faceless millions that made the trip to new lands.
