Inspired by the idea of a tree of justice found at the Constitutional Court, fifteen women each made a leaf on which they told their own story of facing injustices in their homes and community in Nieu-Bethesda. The stories include issues of alcoholism, violence and upbringing. The larvae represent a mighty tree under attack at its roots.
