Reporters Without Borders – Prize for Women of Courage, 2009-2010

Wood, photograph, lens, brass, 10 x 10 x 10 cm.

This award recognizes women who fight for the respect of freedoms and basic human rights.

The box, made of elm burl, hides a photograph. When the box is raised, the “magic eye” allows to see the image illuminated by ambient light. The image is a woman seen from behind holding the earth on his head and this image honours anonymous women who show courage every day.
