7 Daughter’s of Eve for Truth Hounds 2018-12-17

7 Daughter’s of Eve for Truth Hounds

Beginning of this December, LAPIZ was invited by Truth Hounds to paint a human right mural. Truth Hounds is an Ukrainian NGO with its base in the Georgian capital Tbilisi, fighting for human rights by investigating, documenting and monitoring human rights violations. They also offer a safe haven in their city shelter for human rights defenders facing security threats as well as providing educational programmes. In order to gain a larger audience they organised a street festival inviting (inter-)national artists each painting a mural concerning human right issues.

LAPIZ painted the motive ‘(7 Daughter’s of ) EVE’ in Tbilisi’s city centre which was inspired by the book of the same name of Bryan Sykes. It describes how all people living in Europe today share one of 7 women as a common ancestor. Also, EVE has blue eyes, which is a hint to a study conducted by the University of Copenhagen which has shown that all people with blue eyes share a common ancestor. For the mural in Tbilisi, half of the building was painted red while the other half is painted blue, each side adorned by the big face of EVE.

The two faces are connected on a third wall where the background colours meet and the unificating slogan “We are all children of one mother” is written in Georgian. It was a great opportunity to paint this motive in a country where parts are still occupied by outside forces and also to add colour to the grey walls of this great city.

Well done LAPIZ
