'Trust' portrays a disabled girl wearing a caliper and holding a collection tin and a teddy bear, same as the artist’s monumental sculpture entitled <Charity (2002-2003)>.
<Charity> is based on The Spastics Society’s (now Scope) charity collection box which was commonly found outside local chemists and shops in the 1960s and 1970s. Hirst’s version has been vandalized and her contents emptied, some remaining coins lie on the ground next to a crowbar. Monumental yet vulnerable, <Charity> plays on the art historical tradition of depicting the Virtue of Charity as a single female figure.
<Trust> slightly differs from 'Charity' in that the girl's back has been broken into with the crowbar. It impeaches the decayed reality of charity for using the cute disabled girl to attract people and get donations and connects the pitiful girl to the artist’s own unhappy childhood.
