About The Artwork: 

Introducing "Preserve My Place," a surreal black-and-white illustration featuring a Russian Faberge egg with four hands emerging from it and pins coming in from the side. An intriguing combination of elements creates an otherworldly atmosphere and invites viewers to ponder its mysterious symbolism.

The Faberge egg is a highly symbolic object with a rich cultural history. The egg is a traditional symbol of rebirth and renewal, while the intricate craftsmanship and luxurious materials used to create it are symbols of wealth and power.

The four hands coming out of the egg may represent different stages of life or different aspects of the human experience. The hands may suggest the importance of creativity and craftsmanship, the power of human touch, and the ability to shape the world.

The pins coming in from the side may represent the challenges and obstacles that we must face in life and the need to persevere and overcome adversity. 

Taken together, the symbolism of the illustration may suggest the importance of perseverance, creativity, and attention to detail in the face of challenges and adversity. 

"A box without hinges, key, or lid,
Yet golden treasure inside is hid."
― J.R.R. Tolkien
