This painting represents the Armenian Genocide of 1915 when the Ottoman government’s systematic extermination of the Armenians from their historic homeland in the territory constituting the present-day Republic of Turkey.

The man in the middle is a survivor from the Genocide and the woman in the right is a vivid memory and the chaos that occurred during that era of time. The small birds in the left corner represents hope over an Armenian written letter.
