The driving force towards painting this piece is to denounce the horrendous hunger the indigenous children from the Wayuu tribe suffer in the North of Colombia, in the Guajira department. More than 4500 children have died in the region over the last 8 years due to malnutrition; the first cause of child mortality, is political corruption. Wayuu mothers' lack of proper education is another factor that worsens the situation mentioned above. They often refuse to undertake the adequate medical treatments and, chose traditional and superstitious remedies that are almost non-efficient.

Hahnemühle German Etching Paper
This heavyweight paper has a slightly warm base tone and a strong mottled texture. It creates a print with strong colours and deep blacks that feel rich and high in contrast. This is due to the texture of the paper enabling it to hold more ink and capture the light. This paper gives an artwork a handmade crafted feel and museum quality print with its weight and strong texture. Hahnemüle German Etching is a robust Giclée paper, meaning it doesn’t tend to fray as much at the edges.
