To capture the unbridled spirit of volunteerism, I decided upon a central image of raised hands in the bold colors of the flag of the Spanish Republic. The varied colors further serve to reflect the diversity of the volunteers. The central hand is in a fist, recognized during the Spanish Civil War as an anti-Fascist salute, as well as a show of solidarity. The hands rise from a Spanish Republican helmet.
An American flag serves as a backdrop, rendered in blue as though impacted by aerial perspective; this emphasizes the distance the American volunteers traveled to lend a hand. Brushstroke edges evoke a feeling of energy and action. This aesthetic is carried through to the play's title, which was hand-painted.
