Detail: Rape Culture label-this is a “dysfunctional” staple gun embedded in a cremation box installed on a painting called Brand New Cave. This segment shows the disgust the Shaman feels towards those who destroy Nature. The attached broken violin bow means that rape doesn’t have a melody, sound, voice… nothing worth “listening.” Rape Culture label also depicts Shaman’s dismay at the collective acquiescence associated with this monstrosity. The Shaman placed rocks wrapped in silk to soften the hurt, and as an offering of compassion, and empathy to all who have suffered.
