Lead-safety Message: This allegorical image symbolises the lead
contamination that, more or less, surrounds us in the anthropocene. When it
is more, it can diminish a happy family. The family is shown small to
emphasise how lead toxicity can diminish our lives both in length and
quality. I chose an interracial family to show how lead can impact anybody,
but particularly children. Each strike of dark lighting is an incidental,
toxic hit; the cloud is environmental, cumulative lead. The images are
‘creative commons’ which further references the ubiquity of lead. The leaden
sky aims to bring a mood that is redolent of the plumbophobia that can
overcome us when we understand the truth about lead. The image stiffens the
resolve of this lead soldier to continue the grim fight. Have a nice day.
