Lady Liberty

I had an idea and spent the evening drawing it out with my students in class. A new concept for Lady Liberty which is an iconic symbol in the US. I thought I'd make her look like an angelic African American lady draped in the flag. A former slave whose chains morphed into flowers which she used to bless the land with forgiveness and love. A different take on a classic American theme. Maybe in this time of turmoil in our country and the world this can help with a positive message as modest as it is.

Thanks Crash Latte. I like to explore different / unusual versions of things.
