Illustrious Artist - Jorge Ribeiro
On the section for this week, there was one thing that really stood out. It was the idea of hardworking. I chose this hammer to represent the hard work, because Ivan's group is in charge to work on the mortars, and it is in the Russian cold, so they have to keep on working on a very cold temperature, without barely eating food. This shows that the life in the Gulag was hard, because despite the fact that you are in prison, you have to do hard working out in the cold. These people would have to get out there and work hard, which in this case, would be working on a mortar, and this hard work can take people's lives, not only because of the cold, but because they also barely get food, they are practically starving. And this was one of the biggest problems that occurred during this section read, which all this shows tat life was not easy at a Gulag, no matter how much advantage you took from things, in the end it was all hard.
