At that time in early 1994 it was rumored that people were meeting with the possibility of agreeing some form of ceasefires. The picture tries to capture through symbols, that difficult time for the communities when the
hard bargaining had begun in secret. The 25 stands for the length in years that the Troubles had lasted and the population was worn out. I felt at that time, that the female figure was looking outwards towards hope and a new future.
