“According to Greek mythology, humans were originally created with four arms, four legs, and a head with two faces. Fearing their power, Zeus split them into two separate beings condemning them to spend their lives in search for their other halves.”

Illustration Agency Anna Goodson wanted to show their support for LGBT rights in Russia in light of recent laws that have made life worse for LGBT individuals living under Putin’s Russia. You can see the full gallery here. These are a selection of the beautiful artworks that have been produced. This is what Anna Goodson Wrote:
There is a lot of controversy regarding the next Olympic Winter Games, due to take place in Sochi, Russia, especially with Russian laws regarding homosexuality.
At Anna Goodson Illustration Agency, we believe that Art Speaks Louder Than Words and we wanted to make a statement and show the world that our agency and illustrators don’t support discrimination or violence of any kind, regardless of religion, race or sexual orientation.
We hope that you will all share and post this illustration and help make this world a more tolerant one to live in.
