Ras is the artisan of “Death of Innocence”. Ras knows “that I have been blessed with a gift and believes that when he is creating, he is communing with the source of that gift”.
“Death of Innocence” is a strong depiction of a caged African American man’s face. His features are well defined and he looks in disbelief. The shadows of the prison bars criss-cross his face and say so much about what is/will be happening.
