Description
This illustration depicts a Jewish individual wearing the traditional prayer shawl (tallit) and ornaments (tephillan) to which is covered with anti-semitic slurs and other hateful remarks. These comments are the same kind of tags that have been used to vandalize Jewish homes, businesses, and Synagogues worldwide. Graffiti such as these are still seen today and bear a great burden on the Jewish people. Even in the age of modernity, Anti-semitism and racism are just as prevalent, now more than ever. Even though the individual is in a state of agony and despair, he still wears and showcases his Jewish identity despite everything thrown in his way. Size: "17x10"
