My Vision of Peace
Marquetry work "Seminal peace" Peace is trying to express the archetypal child. Also, the archetypal sociality and natural oneness with another being, starting from the mother.
However, the relationship to peace is possible that most vividly expressed sentences Fyodor M. Dostoevsky in the novel "Brothers Karamazov":
"May the sacred ideals are not worth the tears of a child"
-------------------------------
"While there is still time, I hasten to protect myself, and so I renounce the higher harmony altogether. It's not worth the tears of that one tortured child who beat itself on the breast with its little fist and prayed in its stinking outhouse, with its unexpiated tears to 'dear, kind God'! It's not worth it, because those tears are unatoned for. They must be atoned for, or there can be no harmony... I don't want harmony. From love for humanity I don't want it. I would rather be left with the unavenged suffering. I would rather remain with my unavenged suffering and unsatisfied indignation, even if I were wrong. Besides, too high a price is asked for harmony; it's beyond our means to pay so much to enter on it. And so I hasten to give back my entrance ticket, and if I am an honest man I am bound to give it back as soon as possible. And that I am doing. It's not God that I don't accept, Alyosha, only I most respectfully return him the ticket."
Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Medium
Motif child ("Seminal peace") is made through the medium of wood, in fact, a medium veneer (using natural ash veneer, spruce, pine, cherry, pear, walnut ..), the old technique of artistic crafts and applied arts - marquetry technique.
