Each one of us is unique, searching for a common memory where everyone's included, contributing to the whole. A world made of many sorts working together achieving harmony. I was inspired by the art of Ganondagan, "The Village of Peace." Art connected their society to Nature and the forces of the Universe. Specifically, “Harmony” was inspired by styles from 17th Century Iroquoian pottery.
