About

Images of agricultural laborers drawn on walls and papyrus scrolls in ancient Egypt served are recalled in the forefront of this panel. Children are portrayed in frontal, profile positions along the horizontal plane in a frieze-like placement. Set against a desert-like landscape, dressed in knee-length wraps, and holding woven baskets presumably filled with cotton, the history of African Americans is traced from their roots in Africa to the present day. By alluding to African history through stylized poses and influence of ancient Egyptian art, Lawrence points to the concern many black leaders and educators possesed regarding the widespread use of child labor on Southern farms and more importantly, how history has repeated itself.

Custom Framing

We use the highest quality wood in our modern shop to create custom frames, frame your print with precision-cut acid-free matt board, and mount it behind a UV-blocking semi-gloss plexiglass to protect your art from the sun, dust, pollution, heat, and humidity. Then we add finishing touches like wall hanging mount, wall friendly bumpers and a protective backing.
