Clay figure sculptures commemorate Palestine war victims


Palestinian artists Iyad Sabbah has created a symbol of the suffering of citizens in Gaza in the form of a number of clay figures wandering away from war damaged ruins.

The “Worn Out” installation makes the figures almost mummified, a man holds a child in his arms, a woman grips the hand of a small boy and the elderly stagger through the wreckage.

The sculptures are placed in front of blown-up buildings and their blood-stained bodies are a powerful reminder of the recent conflict.
