This artwork shows diverse and different pieces within a set of circles, each circle represents a different life. By presenting this difference side by side, life becomes more complete. Just like people in this world. If they were the same in everything, life would be monotonous; but diversity and difference between people make life valuable and beautiful. For it is only in the continual learning from those different than us that we, and our world, can be made most whole. When these unique pieces are all in place, and through the harmonious coexistence of each individual, a dazzlingly beautiful “global mosaic” is created, bringing peace, harmony and hope to our world.
