"A metaphorical and nightmarish image of lost children in the woods, searching for a safer place. This illustration was made thinking of the children and their families running away from Syria, looking for a future in Europe, but loosing their path and life in the way. If there is hope for them is up to us." - Jose Luis Agreda
