When Christ hung from the cross dying, witnesses
claimed he had two final statements. His last was simply, "It is
done". Before that, with a gash in his side, and vinegar on his lips,
he implored, "My God, why hast thou forsaken me?" Those are
the 7 words. In this work she looks at us, wearing his pose. She begs
many questions; what is her sacrifice, what is her gift, what is our redemption.
