“Almost Buried” by Lisa Benson

I’m so thrilled to share a third work of art by Lisa Benson, artist and writer for Migraine.com. Lisa says of this piece:

Almost Buried” is inspired by Carravaggio’s Entombment of Christ. I was struck by how much everyone else was taken in by Jesus’s pain. I feel in our society there is a huge separation between pain and “every day life.” When I see so many in the migraine community suffer with no one understanding I wish we would come to help each other like in Carravaggio’s painting. So I sculpted the figure going through his ordeal alone with cars up above on the bridge, completely unaware.
