About The Artwork:

The idea for this sketch was born out of our immigration to the United States in 2015. Above the surface is a small, fragile little plant — with a strong ancient root system in Africa.

Africa is often symbolized by its roots, representing the continent's deep cultural and historical connections to its people and their ancestors. The roots also signify the growth and development of the continent, as well as its resilience and strength in the face of adversity. In contrast, the United States is often symbolized by its branches and upward growth, representing the country's spirit of innovation, progress, and individualism.

"Though kin scatter the earth like seed and grow apart, their paths are rooted in the same ground." ― Marissa Byfield
