Mary Mihelic, Running Girls.

Number 23 in a series of 53 artworks about the Chibok kidnapped schoolgirls.

The text art “The Red Cross” is relevant since the organization was working to negotiate the release of all the kidnapped schoolgirls.  It references the cross, blood and war.    In addition, the “Nazarene” text refers to reports that ISIL is now painting N’s on houses where Christians reside in Iraq and Syria -- the N standing for Nazarene.
