Artist statement: Yeda Maria Correa De Oliveira 

Regardless of colour, sex and creed, all people are entitled to a decent life, which is beyond equality in employment, medical care and leisure.
Above economic and social rights, every human being on this earth has the right, to have his / her dignity protected and preserved but that will not be achieved until ethnocentrism and imperialism and sexism are swept off the planet. Until then, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights will not be fully understood
