'Citizens of Earth' depicts a crowded vessel precariously crammed full of  refugees, making the perilous journey to escape a war zone to potential safety.

People/families with no choice  find themselves risking their lives in order to survive their plight. 

The figures contained within the arched windows on the upper level of the vessel symbolise the precious cargo's hope.

The vessel was influenced by The Maestà of Duccio, an altarpiece composed of many individual paintings commissioned by the city of Siena in 1308 from the artist Duccio di Buoninsegna.
