Gansu Province, China. Prune Nourry's Terracotta Daughters. New York-based artist Prune Nourry modeled her Terracotta Daughters after eight female orphans from Mainland China, whom she was introduced to by the Children of Madaifu; a non-profit organization that aids orphans and children left behind by migrant worker parents.
Pictured is one Daughter associated with the project with her grandmother outside of their home in Gansu Province.
The project provided three years of education to each participant.
Prune Nourry's Terracotta Daughters. New York-based artist Prune Nourry explored China’s gender imbalance by creating a female army of 116 life-size sculptures.
Ms. Nourry collaborated with a local artisan inside a Terracotta Warrior replica factory in Xi’an, China, for more then a year to ensure the sculptures style would emulate the iconic Terracotta Army that was unearthed nearby in 1974.
