Birds in a Nest


Things I learned while creating this piece was all the hardships the prisoners had to go through. My favorite part about making this piece was laying the hay down on my paper. While doing this it made me think about how hard it must have been sleeping on it. The uncomfortableness must have been so hard. Something else I want to share about this artwork is that this is that this project is what touched me the most while learning about the Holocaust.
