Artist's Description

“Consequences”, the signature piece from the Genetic Bill of Rights Painting Series by Mariam Muradian & C.C. Arshagra. The artist was rapidly losing her sight throughout the painting of the entire series; this one signature piece was painted by Mariam Muradian when she was blind (a side effect suffered from a medication given to assist her heart). The Genetic Bill of Rights was drafted in 2000 by The Council for Responsible Genetics and GeneWatch, yet most people do not even know that it exists. These rights exist for everyone; to inform people that they have the right to govern their own genes, bodies, cultures, and biodiversity.The entire card set is worth owning and sharing. The knowledge this series embodies is priceless.
