What is your artwork about?
“If I were given one wish, it would be for World Peace. I also think that in order to achieve world peace, we need to care for our planet’s health.
My panel is a graphic representation of our planet with the sea below and the sky above. A large peace symbol is centered on the green earth, with symbols in the top and words below. Although some symbols can have many meanings, the following are the ones in my thoughts.”
1. Circle with a line: water; necessary for life.
2. Quartered circle: a sacred space or sacred earth; also the Celtic Cross.
3. Yin-Yang: universal harmony and global unity.
4. Propeller with a “no” symbol over it: no radiation. The symbol for no nuclear energy was too complicated for the 2” diameter circle. However, I am also thinking of that.
5. Arrows in a circle: recycle. I am also thinking of reduce and reuse.
6. Circle with a dot: creative spark of divine consciousness.
7. Empty circle: unity, wholeness, infinity, the feminine spirit, a sacred space and the spirit of mother earth.
