From the Aesthetica Creative Works Annual

This is one of the most striking images in the Annual. It's by Irish artist Emma Gamble. The bio says "She has continued to create work designed to question accepted notions, such as the belief in the existence of a childlike innocence." This work seems to be in that vein. That chilling knowing look on the child's face and that row of dog (jackal? Anubis?) headed creatues waiting patiently for . . .? And the box? A confession box? I haven't heard of this artist and found nothing on the internet but the image is striking.

The Aesthetica Creative Works Annual 2010 can be purchased on the website.
