The World's Peace As I See It.

My Vision of Peace
I created this painting with the question of how humans can treat one another with love and respect, so that the world can one day be a more peaceful place. To answer this question, I painted a woman holding a drum with a dove floating at her side.
In my culture, the drum is a very powerful instrument; it represents individual power and the unique talents of the individual. It is my dream that if each one of us could use the drum and what it symbolizes to contribute to the betterment of humanity and our natural environment, one day we may have peace. If all humans would use their talents and abilities for good, everyone would appreciate one another and the world would be a better place.
The woman's face shows the inherent beauty of human beings; this is something that should never be destroyed. With the woman's one hand holding another dove and her other hand holding the drum, the woman is showing us that we must approach each other with peace and respect. This is how we can achieve trust and peace in the world.


Medium
Acrylic on canvas, I used a palette knife at the beginning and finished with a brush.
