Her face depicts the strength, beauty and power of the South African grandmothers who are there to protect , nurture and care for the young ones who have suffered the loss of their parents.

She is there to protect, nurture and sustain us and she is the voice that moves us forward to do that which we do not believe we can possibly do.
