Faith Parker
Heart of Justice, 2017

Porcelain and Stoneware
7” × 4”

“Many people refer to the fists that I have on Heart of Justice as the fists of justice. It is a symbol commonly in the civil rights movement as well as with issues that occur today. There are 4 of these fists around the vase and in the space between them there is a heartbeat the way it would be depicted as if it were seen on a heart monitor. Making these two things apart of my piece allowed me to show how justice is a major contributor and aspect of things that go on today with African Americans who are involved in unfair treatment and police brutality.”
