The Victims

Samuel Haile 1909 - 1948

Summary

Figures hang gruesomely from a line held at one end by an eery hand made of wood and sprouting a leaf beside a tree to the left. A full moon hangs in the sky to the right and there is a suggestion of liquid in the foreground beneath the bodies. The figures hang from there heads and each holds an individual item such as the figure to the left who holds a spade, or the figure to the right holding a violin.
