More than just a number?

Jasmine Dima, 16

I wanted to create something that would leave an instant impact.Being a vegan myself, I have always been really passionate about animal rights , therefore I decided to highlight the fact that animals are more than just a number. Now a days its easy to exploit animals, people don’t understand the amount of damage they do with what they are consuming. The goal of my artwork is to demonstrate and emphasise the fear and torment animals feel Leading up to their slaughter , I made the eyes the main focal point to capture the sadness and make you empathetic towards the cow and overall to show that animals lives shouldn’t be at our disposal. The bright yellow tag is there to really exaggerate the importance that animals are not just a number, they are living loving beings who are just as scared to die as we are. I am vegan because a life is more important to me than food, and that Is the message I want to portray in my work.
