About The Artwork:

Introducing "Two Prayers," a black and white illustration featuring a ring adorned with a unique pine cone center, nestled between two teepees and flames. Each element in this composition carries profound symbolism, inviting viewers to embark on a journey of interpretation.

The ring, traditionally a symbol of eternal love and commitment, takes on a new meaning by substituting a diamond for a pine cone. The pine cone symbolizes growth, enlightenment, and the cyclical nature of life, drawing parallels to the eternal journey of personal development and spiritual awakening. This unexpected combination challenges our preconceptions about tradition and love, suggesting that lasting commitment can be as natural and evolving as the pine itself.

The teepees, with their ancestral significance, represent shelter, community, and spiritual connection. However, the presence of flames introduces a powerful element of transformation and renewal. The flames may symbolize trials and tribulations, but they also allude to the purification of the spirit through adversity, ultimately leading to a stronger sense of community and spirituality.

"Two Prayers" invites a range of interpretations. It could symbolize a union rooted in personal growth and transformation, highlighting that love and commitment can thrive despite life's challenges. Alternatively, it might represent the collective journey of a community or partnership, facing trials and emerging stronger and wiser through shared experiences.

In conclusion, "Two Prayers" is a thought-provoking sketch that challenges conventional symbols, encouraging viewers to explore the deeper meanings of love, growth, and community. 

"As if you were on fire from within.
The moon lives in the lining of your skin."
― Pablo Nerudai
