Illustrious Artist- Marina Dissinger

I chose to draw two hands handcuffed together (notice that the cuffs are locked) because one of the main themes in the book is the endurance of humanity. Through the character of Shukhov and his actions, Solzhenitsyn demonstrates that humanity can survive the harshest conditions given. Shukhov and his fellow prisoners maintain their humanity through small acts and rituals. An example of these rituals is removing one's hat at a meal, as shown on page 16. Another is on page 14, which is refraining from licking empty bowls. Concluding, the book demonstrated numerous examples in which endurance of humanity is represented or shown.
