oh wait. is this inspired perhaps by the song "the hanging tree"?

"a man murdered three" (the marks)
"necklace of rope" (the hanging rope)
"if we meet at the hanging tree?" (the tree)
etc.

i can only make out two ideas....

1) the kids are ghosts who have all died because of that rope. And they gathered to see another one fall. (hence the cross)
2) A symbol for the negative consequences of conflicting religion? (hence the cross) ---> leads to the death of innocent ones(children)

but....I can't even begin to guess what the three vertical marks on the tree stand for.... Stands out too much to be unintentional....

Incredible detail work. At first glance, I thought this was a traditional print- possibly a copper etch. I love the contrast between the innocent, wondering faces of the ragged children and the silent, almost menacing tree.

tree three

that's the only connection I can find between the scraches and the tree. maybe the kids were 3 years old? maybe there's something under the tree? it looks like there's two eyes.
they all have their necks covered so it's hard to tell if they died hanged. maybe they did and they got their necks covered by someone before they were buried.

this picture makes me think of the song The Hanging Tree from the hunger games


The Hanging Tree

Are you, Are you
Coming to the tree
Where they strung up a man they say murdered three
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree
Are you, Are you
Coming to the tree
Where the dead man called out for his love to flee
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree

Are you, Are you
Coming to the tree
Where I told you to run, so we'd both be free
Strange things did happen here
No stranger would it be
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree.

Are you, Are you
Coming to the tree
Wear a necklace of rope, side by side with me.
Strange things did happen here,
No stranger would it be,
If we met up at midnight in the hanging tree.

Looks like this piece is ripe with symbolism. What do the three scratches on the tree trunk mean? :o

In the local paper of my city, about two weeks ago, an article printed about a ten year old boy that "accidentally" hung himself to death at a church right down the street from my home. This piece refreshed that story in my mind. It's a very particular illustration and it leaves room for much interpretation.

For some reason it reminds me of Philip Pullman's His Dark Material. In the land of the dead with all the children, all telling about their different Dæmons, and Deaths and whatnot.
Wonderful job!
