Siona Benjamin. Finding Home#91 Esther (Fereshteh), 2006–2006.

Description:
Finding Home # 90 - Hear, 91 - See, 92- Speak (Fereshteh) “ Esther”
This image is one of a triptych

Esther, Esther did not want
To do and act her part, she can’t

Not to see, nor hear, nor speak
Not to foretell the picture bleak

Uncle, Uncle remind her then
If she didn’t do her part, then when?

It might just cause the world to end
If she didn’t have those rules to bend

And so we hope that Esther will see
And hear and speak her part clearly
