This piece is part of a series I have been working on about scapegoats. The millefleurs in the background are also part of a theme I have been working on and, I hope, contribute to some of the beauty of healing from the trauma of being blamed for anything and everything that goes wrong in the family.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

This piece of art is the beginning of a departure from my usual art in that it is about healing from being a family scapegoat.

The original scapegoat tradition had its roots in Jewish custom. A goat was chosen and weighed down with items that were symbolically supposed to represent undesirable conditions in the community: famines, in-fighting, disease, unexplained deaths and so on. Once the goat was weighted down, it was sent out to the desert away from the community where it presumably died.
As for human scapegoats, they are primarily found in alcoholic and narcissistic families, which tend to have a lot of emotional (and sometimes physical) abuse. These kinds of families are notorious for blaming and even bullying one person for anything and everything that goes wrong. If an immediate fault cannot be found within the scapegoat, then the family typically uses subjective blame like interpreting the scapegoat's feelings as negative or hostile (i.e. "you're always angry at everyone", "you're ungrateful", "you create drama", etc). Narcissistic families go further and use interpretive feelings as an excuse to punish, as well as blame.
Scapegoating is a serious societal problem and causes severe damage to relationships, the unity of the family, to the psyche and well being of the one who is continually blamed.
This piece is also the first piece I created when I decided to pursue an MSW (I already have an M.Ed in art Education).
A much longer explanation for what scapegoating is and how you can heal from it is on my blog:

This is meant to be healing art: the white scapegoat (signifying purity) that has been sent out to the desert wanders and finds an abundant lush garden instead, and the family that burdened him with all of the blaming, shaming, rejection, insults and toxic emotional waste, this load has miraculously turned to white butterflies and is literally floating away, disencumbering the goat of his heavy load.

A lot of my art is also influenced by Renaissance art and the millefleurs in this particular piece were influenced by unicorn tapestries:

The design is dedicated to Robert W. Davis, LCSW, who spends tireless hours trying to counsel scapegoats and rehabilitate their families.
