Art for Peace, Planet, Mother & Child - "Manhattan Madonna" & huge sister Paintings for Peace

by : Dr Gideon Polya
Saturday April 11, 2009 - 01:16

When words fail, we can say it in pictures. Art for Peace can surely be effective as outlined below. Indeed we must at least TRY for the cause of those Mothers and Children suffering under Bush-ite-Zionist Wars and Occupations in the ongoing Bush (now Obama) War on Women and Children in the Occupied Palestinian, Iraqi and Afghan Territories - and for Humanity as a whole threatened by a looming 10 billion-victim Climate Genocide.

Each year in the World about 16.0 million people die avoidably from deprivation, of whom about 9.5 million are under-5 year old infants (see: http://globalavoidablemortality.blo... ) .

Each year in the non-European World about 14.8 million people die avoidably from deprivation, of whom about 9.4 million are under-5 year old infants (see: http://globalavoidablemortality.blo... ) .

What has this carnage amounted to long-term, for example over the period 1950-2005?

In the period 1950-2005, in the World about 1.3 billion people died avoidably from deprivation, this estimate being consonant with the number of under-5 infant deaths (0.88 billion) of which 90% (0.79 billion) were avoidable deaths (see: http://globalavoidablemortality.blo... ) .

In the period 1950-2005, in the non-European World about 1.2 billion people died avoidably from deprivation, this estimate being consonant with the number of non-European under-5 infant deaths (0.85 billion) of which 90% (0.77 billion) were avoidable deaths (see: http://globalavoidablemortality.blo... ) .

Yet this carnage has been utterly avoidable – and the continuing carnage is utterly avoidable. Put simply, this global avoidable mortality holocaust is due to differential resource distribution on Spaceship Earth with the First World (notably the United States of America aka the warmonger- and racist Zionist-beholden United States of Israel) in charge of the flight deck.

The wonderful example of Cuba demonstrates the utter needlessness of the continuing First World-imposed avoidable death holocaust. Thus in 2003 Cuba had a per capita income of $1,170 as compared to $37,610 for the US. However the annual under-5 infant mortality rate was 0.17% in Cuba (the same as in the US) and annual avoidable death was zero (0) in both countries. It should be noted that avoidable deaths (excess death, avoidable mortality, excess mortality, deaths that did not have to happen) is defined here as the difference between the actual deaths in a country and the deaths expected for a peaceful, decently run country with the same demographics (see “Global avoidable mortality: http://globalavoidablemortality.blo...).

The example of Cuba – realized under criminal Sanctions imposed by the US for about half a century - demonstrates that with a modest annual per capita income, good governance, good primary health care and high female literacy it is possible for a country with 1,130 x100/37,.610 = 3% of the US annual per capita income to achieve the same health outcomes as the richest and most powerful country on Earth.

The carnage doesn’t have to happen but continues in countries such as India due to First World hegemony and Indigenous corruption and greed. The example of China (population 1.3 billion) is very encouraging: annual avoidable death rate 0% and under-5 infant mortality rate 0.82% (0.08% in Hong Kong) as compared to the situation with India (population 1.1 billion): annual avoidable death rate 0.35% and under-5 infant mortality rate 1.92% (2003 data) (Table 8, “Body Count. Global avoidable mortality since 1950”: G.M. Polya, Melbourne, 2007: http://mwcnews.net/Gideon-Polya and http://globalbodycount.blogspot.com/ ).

It doesn’t have to happen but does because of greed and dishonesty – and largely First World-made global warming will make it horribly worse with about 10 billion people (2 billion of them Indians) expected to die avoidably this century due to unaddressed man-made global warming (see “Racist G20 Summit ignores Climate Emergency & betrays Indians to 2 billion-victim Climate Genocide” : http://gideon.sulekha.com/blog/post... ).

If Words fail one can try saying it in Pictures. Words having failed, I have painted a series of huge paintings to celebrate the beauty and sanctity Mother and Child (see my Madonna Paintings series: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gideon... ).

“Manhattan Madonna” (see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gideon... ) is a huge 9-11 memorial painting that I have recently completed as part of a series of Madonna and Child paintings based on major cities. The Manhattan Madonna has a fundamental message that the most profound beauty and truth in our world is that of Mother and Child and that this beauty and truth transcends the greatest works of Man (for further details see "Manhattan Madonna & 9/11", MWC News: mwcnews.net/content/view/10766/26/ ) .

"Sydney Madonna" (see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gideon... ) is a huge painting (1.3 meters x 2.2 meters) that I have recently created in a humanitarian cause. It is inspired by a 2 millennium tradition of Christian icons representing the Virgin Mary and Baby Jesus. The image also represents at a fundamental, universal level what is most sacred to all decent people whether theist, atheist or agnostic, namely Mother and Child. My “Sydney Madonna” shows Mother and Child superimposed (together with aspects of the flora and fauna of Australia) upon the most beautiful Man-made landscape in Australia, specifically the Sydney Opera House, the Harbor filled with yachts, the Sydney Harbor Bridge, and the North Shore. The message of the painting is that Mother, Child and Wild Nature utterly transcend the greatest works of Man (for further details see "Sydney Madonna & Aboriginal Genocide" on MWC News: mwcnews.net/content/view/10865/26/ ).

"Melbourne Madonna" (see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gideon... ) (1.3 meter x 2.8 meter) is the third painting in a series of huge paintings I have created that are dedicated to the transcendent importance and sanctity of Mother and Child. This message has to be endlessly re-stated because the awful current reality is that 16 million people die avoidably each year on Planet Earth, about 12 million are Women or Children and about 9 million of these avoidable deaths are of under under-5 year old infants. “Melbourne Madonna” uniquely captures the quintessential innocence, hedonism and denial of the happy, a-political people of this great, liberal city who simply “look the other way” over their national complicity in horrendous world events such as the continuing global avoidable mortality holocaust in the Third World, the Palestinian Genocide, the Iraqi Genocide, the Afghan Genocide and the looming Climate Genocide that is set to take 10 billion lives this century due to unaddressed man-made global warming (for further details see "Melbourne Madonna. Australian Hedonism, Benign Racism & Denial", MWC News: mwcnews.net/content/view/13950/26/ ).

“Rosanna Madonna” (see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gideon... ) is a huge and joyous painting of Mother and Child in the beautiful Christian tradition dating back to the Early Christian era. This huge painting (1.3 metres x 2.7 metres) is based upon a church and surrounding landscape in the leafy suburb of Rosanna (named after the wife of an early settler) in the north of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, and follows a series of previous polemical paintings I have created to foster Respect for Woman and for Mother and Child (for further details see "War, Deprivation & Denial. “Rosanna Madonna” painting" in MWC News: mwcnews.net/content/view/16627/42/ ).

“Jerusalem Madonna” (see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gideon... ) has been created to help convince an unresponsive World of their obligation to help Mother and Child, not just in Occupied Palestine but indeed throughout the World and in all countries currently partly or completely occupied by Zionist-beholden Racist Bush-ite Amerika, its allies and surrogates (currently Occupied Haiti, Somalia, Palestine, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, and Diego Garcia). What gives the proto-Nazi Bush-ites the right to invade and occupy other countries across the world and subject their conquered Indigenous Populations to passive genocide? “Jerusalem Madonna” is a huge painting (1.3 meters x 2.5 meters) in acrylic on high-quality, doubly primed canvas. It is the latest in a series of Madonna and Child (literally My Lady and Child) paintings I have created to promote love and respect for Mother and Child in a world in which 16 million people die avoidably every year, of whom about 10 million are under-5 year old infants (for further details see "Zionism, Occupation, Palestinian Genocide. “Jerusalem Madonna”. Mother & Child " on MWC News: mwcnews.net/content/view/17194/42/ ).

Words have failed – it is so hard to get through the Mainstream media Wall of Silence in the racist, lying, genocidal, holocaust-ignoring, “democratic Nazi” Western Murdochracies.

What can we do? Peace is the only way but silence kills and silence is complicity - we must continue to resolutely inform everyone we can.

Words having failed, please send my huge paintings for Peace, Mother and Child (see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/gideon... ) to everyone you can – I am very happy for these images to be used by anyone, anyhow in the interests of Humanity.

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy. The situation on the ground is not as simple as pro-EU and trade versus pro-Putin and Russian hegemony in the region. When US Senator John McCain dined with Ukraine’s opposition leaders in December, he shared a table and later a stage with the leader of the extreme far-right Svoboda party Oleh Tyahnybok. This is Oleh Tyahnybok, he has claimed a "Moscow-Jewish mafia" (...)

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

PART I PART II PART III If there is one major inconsistency in life, it is that young people who know little more than family, friends and school are suddenly, at the age of eighteen, supposed to decide what they want to do for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, because of their limited life experiences, the illusions they have about certain occupations do not always comport to the realities. I discovered this the first time I went to college.

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

How much corruption can a “democracy” endure before it ceases to be a democracy? If five venal, mendacious, duplicitous, amoral, biased and (dare I say it) satanic Supreme Court “justices”—John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Anthony Kennedy—have their way, America will soon find out. In several previous articles for Pravda.Ru, I have consistently warned how the Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision is one of the (...)

A question I’ve frequently been asked since I began writing for Pravda.Ru in 2003 is, “Why did you become disillusioned with the practice of law?” This question is understandable, particularly since, in most people’s minds, being an attorney is synonymous with wealth and political power. I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
