Art: Emancipation by Artist
Created using strips of canvas to represent shackles, he was only unbound and emancipated upon his demise.

EMANCIPATION

No rack can torture me,
My soul's at liberty
Behind this mortal bone
There knits a bolder one

You cannot prick with saw,
Nor rend with scymitar.
Two bodies therefore be;
Bind one, and one will flee.

The eagle of his nest
No easier divest
And gain the sky,
Than mayest thou,

Except thyself may be
Thine enemy;
Captivity is consciousness,
So's liberty.

~Emily Dickinson
