This award winning multi media piece was created to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide of 1915.
It depicts a sunrise after our trees, (symbolizing life form in Armenia) have been brutally destroyed. There are blackened, hollowed out pomegranates stacked in the foreground just like our ancestors skulls were stacked and displayed. The pomegranate symbolizes the fruitful Armenian who is always full of the abundant seeds of love, life, rich culture and joyful family relationships. The pomegranates on the floor are the shells of what was left behind however through that “dead” stack the bloodline still flows deep into a new thriving tree which in the last 100 years has been sewing Armenian seeds globally. Our branches might have been cut down, our fruit might have been hollowed out, but our roots run so very deep. We are invincible We are unbreakable.
