This pieces refers to the persecution of Armenians during the last one hundred years, particularly the Turkish massacre of one million Armenians in 1915. Zulian's Armenian grandparents fled earlier massacres, coming to the United States in 1893. The box is covered with news clippings of the current war with Azerbaijan while the two plates are painted front and back with, in one case, George Bush's statement acknowledging the genocide of 1915 and in the other with references to the current conflict. The cup is painted with the Armenian alphabet. All the objects, metal and ceramic, were made by the artist while a resident at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center.
The original object was scanned as a TIFF file on a Nikon Coolscan 4000 film scanner at approximately 4000 pixels on the long dimension. A 300 ppi JPEG file limited to 1024 pixels on the long dimension was then added to the CONTENTdm database.
