Artist explains: The Refugee
woman and her Children are fleeing through the Unknown Darkness
but God has not abandoned them. The White Line represents God's
Light and the Flying Fish is Hope, accompanying them. One hand
points to God, the other shows the Way. The Arabic script (Azerbaijan's
alphabet until the late 1920s), reads "God is Great".
The (red) Sugar Cone, traditionally a gift at weddings, and the
Pears symbolize the posessions that the refugees must leave behind
(1993, 5' x 5' oil).
