The Embrace

Here another one of Kollowitz inspired charcoal drawing. Much of her work dealt with confrontation with Death, and this is somewhat the opposite- sometimes people when they feel overwhelmed by life they long for end to their sufferings, and so they gladly take the Death’s cold embrace. Of course I know suicide is never the answer to everything, and suffering is part of what makes us grow. There was a quote I liked that came from a certain short movie called “The Butterfly Circus” – “The greater the struggle, the more glorious the triumph.” You can actually find it on YouTube and it stars Nick Vujicic, I’m sure the name will sound very familiar to you. πŸ™‚
