Eternally Humane

2015

The work presents bridging cultural diversity on two levels of connotation. One level represents the interlaced relations throughout history; evident in abstract architectural Moorish ornaments, where the constant repetition of lines forms David’s hexagon star, Islamic octagons, quadrille crosses, and the echoed analytic structure of arches form a pyramid. The other level represent future possible relations when nourished in unity, as a pregnant woman with multiple caring hands holds the promise of a child living in harmony, the belly sealed with a tattoo of the eternity tree of knowledge and wisdom.

The piece is for the "Bridge"exhibition, organized by Caravan, Saint Germain des Pres, Paris, France, 2015
