Child Bride Of The Sahara
Painting - Acrylic On Canvas Board
Inspired by a famous National Geographic cover, Avonelle channeled her outrage about child brides into this work, a matching sculpture and her writings. A copy of an original poem by Avonelle, Child Bride of the Sahara, is on the back of this original painting. Later, another painting was created when the famous 'cover girl' was relocated as an adult.
*For all of 2015 100% of the profits from the Avonelle Kelsey Gallery print sales will automatically be donated to Hundehilfe Thailand. Hundehilfe's street dog sterilization program spays dogs for free in the costal communities of Southern Thailand in and around the community of Bang Saphan. Their work prevents the birth and suffering or thousands of homeless dogs every year. This fundraiser includes sales of art prints, phone cases, pillow covers, cards... All print sales of all Avonelle's artwork from this site!
