This was done with Charcoal, acrylic and copper. The photo I used was taken by the amazing John Kenny. His work is truly inspirational.
Saint Josephine Bakhita is venerated as a modern African saint, and as a saint with a special relevance to slavery and oppression. She has been adopted as the patron saint of Sudan.
