week46Artwork of the week: Joy by Dominic Benhura a part of the NGZ permanent collection

This week NGZ celebrates the International Day for Tolerance.

The sculpture shows three children holding hands. The child in the middle appears to be a boy and they seem to be playing happily together despite their difference in gender. The International Day for Tolerance is an annual observance as declared by UNESCO to bring awareness to people the need to tolerate people despite their differences which could be cultural, racially or gender based. Whilst hoping to teach people about respecting and recognizing the rights and beliefs of others, the day recognises some of the negative effects of intolerance and how these have a negative impact on the society. This entails living together, with due regard to rights and common values. The United Nations has since launched a campaign entitled TOGETHER with the aim to promote tolerance, respect and dignity across the world.
