Growing through barbed wires
Artist: Helen Arjmandi
” The harmonious new growing of flowers creates openings in a bed of barbed wires and reaches the blue sky. The thorns of the once oppressing barbed wires turn into frames protecting the new growth.
It reminds me of the people who are oppressed around the world, and their freedom comes when they overcome their differences and act based on a collective awareness.
The eight-pointed flowers are a symbol of resurrection and spiritual forces. By repeating the pattern, I wanted to emphasize the importance of joining efforts in enlightening one another.”
