Neda Revisted........

A month ago I posted about the tragic murder of the Iranian girl, Neda, and the subsequent sculpting of her image by a long time friend of mine, Paula Slater.

Since that post the bust has been cast in bronze and Paula's efforts on Neda's behalf has gained notable attention.

In response to requests to sculpt Neda with her hair free-flowing to symbolize her as a free woman, Paula has produced this new image of the woman who has come to exemplify the struggle for human rights in Iran.

This bust will also be cast in bronze.

The Press Release is available and is very informative.

Please join me in spreading the word about Paula's work and her efforts to support the struggle for basic human rights for Iranian women.

It is one thing to be trapped inside a body that is failing. It is another thing entirely to have your quality of life reduced by outside oppression.

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." Thomas Jefferson, 1776
