See on Scoop.itSoup for thought

NEW YORK – As a continuation of Prune Nourry’s ‘Holy  Daughters’ project in India, the artist’s new ‘Terracotta Daughters’ sculptures  make a statement about gender preference in China. Nourry has created an army of  116 life-size ‘Terracotta Daughters’ as a contemporary postscript to China’s  famed Terracotta Soldiers.

 

Nourry’s  installation will commence a world tour after a Paris debut in April 2014, with  subsequent stops planned in Switzerland (June) and New York City  (October).
