Blessed are the Peacemakers

ẞanksy | Kids on Guns | 2004 | Print on Canvas

Silhouettes of a young boy and a girl, holding their toys in their hands, high up on a mountain of weapons. The girl is holding a heart-shaped red balloon on a string. It is another work depicting the iconic balloon girl. The simplicity and severity of the color contrasts gives it both beauty and deeper meaning, making it one of the artist’s more somber pieces.

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.”
