Liberty Leading the People

Commemorating the French Revolution which overthrew King Charles X Eugene Delacroix’s painting remains a potent reminder of the peoples power. Notice in the detail Liberty’s Phrygian cap. A similar hat was adopted by the colonists symbolizing their rejection of British rule. Craftivism has always been around.
