My Vision of Peace
A woman from the Mursi tribe of South Omo, Ethiopia holds an AK-47 with a flower protruding from the barrel. The conflicts raging in Africa are complex but the flower in its reminiscence of the 60's anti war movement, is a symbol of hope that peace will one day blossom.

Very powerful and conflicting~

The manner in which you portrayed the woman and the AK-47 with similar tones suggests how a weapon may be perceived as being one with it's keeper~

It's almost as if she absorbed the reason and intent of her weapon and forgotten about the beauty of her homeland. Nature, true to form, smooths out the rough edges and its color symbolizes integrity.
