About The Artwork: 

An intricate melding of ladybugs, feathers, and clothes pegs creates a captivating black-and-white illustration.

In some cultures, ladybugs are seen as symbols of luck and prosperity. They are often connected to the concept of good fortune, which may explain why they have been used in art and literature for centuries. In some areas, they are believed to bring protection from pests and bad luck.

Feathers are often seen as symbols of freedom, strength, and protection. They have long been used in many cultures for spiritual and decorative purposes. In some traditions, feathers are associated with the heavens or a higher power. This is why they are sometimes included in traditional artworks or religious ceremonies.

Clothes pegs are functional items that many people use in their homes. They hang laundry and other objects and can also be used to make art. Clothes pegs can be shaped into patterns or images – like the black-and-white illustration above!

Eight has long been regarded as a symbol of success and triumph, from the ancient theories of Pythagorean numerology to modern-day Japan. This number brings an optimistic outlook in life - each line stretching up infinitely like hands reaching towards fortune. 

"For every beauty, there is an eye somewhere to see it. For every truth, there is an ear somewhere to hear it. For every love, there is a heart somewhere to receive it." — Ivan Panin
