About: This piece represents human curiosity and sense of adventure. For years humans have wondered if there was more to the world then what is on Earth and this curiosity has lead to amazing discoveries and inventions. The creation of the airplane has helped humans travel across the world by air very quickly compared to traveling by land or sea. The airplane was the product of trial and error and repeating the process until you achieve the results you want. It took many years to perfect the modern airplane but it was done because of human determination. Every invention comes from an idea. In order to make the idea an invention you need to be determined to keep trying. Humans have always wondered what is above the clouds. Humans have always wanted to explore and learn more about the world, and with the help of science, humans can get answers. The clouds represent the imagination that humans possess and the airplane and the hot air balloon represent inventions that were created using science, creativity and imagination.
