October 18 - European Anti-trafficking Day of fighting against modern slavery. 
International organizations estimate that there are currently 27 milion people in captivity in the world - That's more than at any moment in history.
In my opinion, Human being is not a commodity from the beginning of one's birth until death. The One has the right to live in dignity and to be treated with respect. A person who deprives another person of this right by violence is not worthy of being a human.

October 18 - European Anti-trafficking Day of fighting against modern slavery. 
International organizations estimate that there are currently 27 milion people in captivity in the world - That's more than at any moment in history.
In my opinion, Human being is not a commodity from the beginning of one's birth until death. The One has the right to live in dignity and to be treated with respect. A person who deprives another person of this right by violence is not worthy of being a human.

The work refers to the trafficking of women in Asian countries. During the discussion with people living in this region, I learned that this practice is developing due to poverty and a large increase in the natural population. Stories told shooked me...
I can not understand how, in a contemporary world full of organizations fighting for human rights, older men can buy a young woman (often a child) who is just a machine that satisfies their sexual needs.
How great must have been the degeneration of people and the collapse of moral and social norms since this procedure is approved by wifes to husbands.
Who is a person in a society who has a family and at the same time is buying a second human being? Who is the wife who as a woman allows for the destruction of other woman?

My work speaks about those innocent beings who have been attacked by a "deadly blow".
They became accidental victims due to poverty, irresponsibility of their parents, bad legal system. The little girls in the picture are multiplied, in the picture a popular children's counting-out game has been used, which is supposed to predict the person in play in this case a victim of "sexual play". The counting begins. Buyer - the executioner counts down
"Eeny, meeny, miny, moe,
Catch a tiger by the toe.
If he hollers, let him go,
Eeny, meeny, miny, moe". The wool has many threads but only one thread breaks belonging to the victim on which the word "moe!" falls. The choosen girl is wounded and the blood pours from wounds.The kid is no longer a child and her white stained dress is a symbol of lost innocence.

„A counting-out game is a simple game intended to select a person to be "it", often for the purpose of playing another game. These games usually require no materials, and are played with spoken words or hand gestures. The historian Henry Carrington Bolton suggested in his 1888 book "Counting Out Rhymes of Children" that the custom of counting out originated in the "superstitious practice of divination by lot.”"
