Four Winds, One World

My Vision of Peace
Native Americans would say there are four corners of the world, and from those corners (north, south, east, west) the four winds come. The winds, they said, are nations of the four races of the world, who are called Human Beings. The four races are black, white, yellow and red. They used to say, that when the four winds will join, the One will be complete, and the worlds of the nations united into one single world.
This depiction presents an abstract image of this completeness. In the image, this is achieved through the help of geometrical structure that is found everywhere in the natural order of things. This order is based upon fractal (geometric pattern)..
Completeness assures peace.


Medium
The central round pattern was first hand-drafted on white cardboard with technical pencil, a ruler and a compass. Then it was traced over with black ink pen. Afterwards, it was scanned and copied onto a computer disk. From there it was imported into a photo-editing software, where it was edited and manipulated with various effects.
