Sudan's civil war finally came to an end in 2005, after claiming 2 million lives.
The Art of Reconciliation was southern Sudan's first art exhibition after the cessation of hostilities.
It featured work by Sudanese artists and school children, and was the brainchild of Bishop Hilary of Malakal from our partner, the Episcopal Church in Sudan (ECS).
It toured in the UK in the summer of 2008 and stopped off at that year's Lambeth Conference of Anglican bishops in Canterbury.
Mary Agol, a peace promoter for Christian Aid partner the Gender Center, holds up a picture she feels most represents the feelings of southern Sudanese women living in Khartoum. She says it is a life 'where everything is distorted'.
