Nos Gratias Vobis Agimus

Latin for “we give thanks to you (plural)” is a work of great gratitude to workers and individuals carrying humanity through the worldwide COVID-19 epidemic. I referenced Classical Roman art using marble busts to portray these individuals as heroes. They are people of a variety of nationalities, normal people that deserve recognition for their struggle and fight during this time, immortalized as the great people of this age. They involve workers and an individual who is staying home (bottom right) which is his own act of service. The symbols in the pedestals subtly reference the roles of the individuals.
