Hortus Closus

After the Tiananmen Square massacre, Yan Zhengxue and his art turned sharply against the government. While imprisoned for two years for his dissident work, he painted almost 100 works, including this one. Titled 89.6!!!! Tiananmen, it shows a blackened sun over a barren Tiananmen Square surrounded by black-oozing veins. Three goats stand in the middle of the square. They represent the obedient ones, the only ones left alive, he explained. (Photo by {Courtesy of Yan Zhengxue})

They stand up for their
Rights, for democracy, for
Freedom, for free speech.

They were massacred. Never
Forget the fallen flowers.
