Castration of Truth in the Garden of Hope
This Penny Ramos-Bennett signed original, has a grey crumbling 45 at its center, because of a shofar being blown. An angel mistakenly has met the fate of the tarot’s hanged man and is bound and suspended in time at the top of this painting. Justice and Journalism flank the angel and are in great peril. Hope rests at the base of this painting and is depicted by Christ in tan and gold, surrounded by Mexicans, Latinas(os), and indigenous people.
