Emily Henochowicz is a young Jewish American artist and activist.  While demonstrating in Jerusalem against the Israeli massacre of activists on the Mavi Marmara, Henochowicz lost her left eye to one of the tear gas canisters fired by Israeli border police.  The image above was published under a Creative Commons license in her blog Thirsty Pixels on 18 June 2010.  She says about her art: “[W]hat you can take personally from this work, I can’t know — art is an interpretive force.  Perhaps emotion can lead to reason.”
