Name: ART38 – Positive Paper Dolls United We Stand
Artist: Louise Kirby
Holding hands is the united symbol of love and support. We may not be able to hold hands with everyone in the world right now, but this design shows how we unite when faced with a crisis. The rows of paper dolls represent people coming together to show appreciation and gratitude to our key workers. The process of making the dolls – of cutting, folding and repeating represents the perseverance of our key workers showing up each day to work.
