Countless many of China’s Falun Gong practitioners, such as the young woman depicted here, have been rendered homeless and destitute as a result of relentless persecution by China’s communist regime. Held closely is the main book of Falun Gong’s teachings, Zhuan Falun, suggesting both its place in a practitioner’s heart and the holding fast to principle; for refusing to recant their beliefs, many in China face torture.  Since 1999, millions of Falun Gong practitioners have thus been put at risk. The angelic presence here suggests a sense of higher support and meaning in the woman’s life.
