This exhibition collected Hannah's portrait paintings from refugee camps in Jordan and Calais, alongside her art projects with Syrian refugees.

The title of the exhibition was inspired by a stanza from William Blake's poem The Divine Image

For Mercy has a human heart, 

Pity a human face, 

And Love, the human form divine, 

And Peace, the human dress.
