Text from plaques:

"Hecuba, the legendary Queen of Troy, is presented here as the matriarch of a grand and global Trojan Family. The faces of the women depicted below represent the diversity of African, Asian, Caucasian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, and Native American peoples who span all continents and who come together in the New Troy today."

 

"Human words ought never to have more force than their doings." Euripides, Hecuba.

 

"Those who have power ought not exercise it wrongfully, nor when they are fortunate should they imagine that they will be so forever." Euripides, Hecuba.
