Lidice Rose

I called this Lidice rose because I based it from a reference photo of a rose which I took from Lidice, a place in the Czech Republic where a memorial dedicated for the Nazi massacre victims is located. The village is about 20 kilometers away from Prague. The victims are said to be more than 300 which include children, men and women. I was in the area last 8 June 2009. The memorial place has a beautiful garden  full of different kinds of roses.

This painting is 18 x 24 cm or approximately 7 x 9.5 inches.
