This painting is about a Deaf adult who has a deep scar, painful memories and never forgets what happened in the past when in oral school. The red hand shows a "hook" and cut the forehead, bleeding and tears coming down from eyes. In the background shows AGB whips a Deaf Horse http://www.nancyrourke.com/agbwhipsdeafhorse.htm and at the bottom shows Mask of Benevolence http://www.nancyrourke.com/maskbenevolence.htm
These two paintings have descriptions that explain about oralism.
