The screen painting is sticked on a mobile toilet in an Africa town. We can see children playing in front of the photography showing a woman holding a man in her arms. The man seems to be sick, tired and very skinny. The picture is about the rallying against AIDS in Africa. The woman seems strong because she is holding the man, she symbolizes motherhood and strength.

We feel sadness and compassion but we can see in the background children playing. Children symbolize hope.

We find this picture interesting because we can see the fight against AIDS.
