Breaking Barriers (detail 2)

Against a bright blue oil-painted background, two metal tags dangle from a goden thread. The first one reads in embossed lettering 'she' and the second 'said'. The tags are attached to the glittery golden outline of a doll-angel like figure with huge wings which look like ears. The left wing bears the word 'my' and the right one 'voice' and also the words 'listen' and 'hear'. The word 'suffragist' appears in black stencilled lettering across the lower body of the angel.
