Candy Store Classic II

We are living in a world in turmoil, a world where basic human principles get trampled, where regular common people seem to be pawns in a bigger game of power and geopolitics. Maybe time to give these basic principles the attention they need.

​​This artwork consists of the first articles of the Universal Declaration Of Human Rights, and is totally composed by alphabet cookies.

Depicted in this artwork are the articles of the UDHR, continuing from Candy Store Classic I.
