Disposable Container

Collage, Size: 22½"x30"

They are called ‘black widows’ because for the most part they are women who have lost family members in ‘the war.’ I read an article just before I did this work wherein it was proudly acknowledged that ‘they’ had started using female suicide bombers because people at borders did not expect women to be killers and so of course this gave a tactical advantage. This wisdom expounds that these women have nothing to live for anyway…and they might as well die bravely to further the ‘cause.’ Just another disposable container: Somebody’s child; somebody’s sister; somebody’s friend; somebody’s wife; somebody’s mother; somebody; some body.
