Kindness Blossom

by: Federica Muraro, Verona, Italy

People are like seeds. When watered and NURTURED, they blossom into stunningly beautiful and diverse creatures.

Artist Statement

I believe that true kindness comes by recognizing oneself in another. And then love for others, beyond differences, can generate a big change in human beings, creating a fertile ground to free people from loneliness and confusion: a chance to find themselves and live in harmony with others. In my drawing the flower symbolizes the kindness that comes from love, while the loss and loneliness are symbolized by the snow and the dry leaf. Freedom is represented by the feather.
