The "Three Little Girls" were created together, in 2002, and the inspiration was the theater play written by Pablo Picasso under the title "Four Little Girls."
The seemingly disconnected language of the girls in the play, reinforces the cruelty of war against their innocence.
As in the play, the Little Girls here do not show their loveliness and innocence: the cruelty of war is depicted in the grimaces of their faces. Furthermore, their hands are either "cut off" or trying desperately to find and hold on steady roots of the ground.
In Little Girl II, the face is a total grimace: mouth and eyes are like black holes supported by an iron "wiring". The same wiring has replaced the disfigured left arm while extending in the surrounding area. The right hand, totally non proportional, has no fingers: black wires stem from the place where fingers should be. The torso is black and blood runs from the neck down to the belly area. The feet are almost non-visible, as they have become part of the dress: a mixture of blue, green, orange and black. The sense of absolute terror and desolation is all that remains.
