About The Artwork:

Introducing "Unseen," a powerful and evocative black and white illustration that speaks volumes about the often overlooked and unrecognized facets of womanhood. This unique artwork features a series of small, intricately designed icons arranged to mirror the word "women" in Braille, serving as a poignant reminder of the hidden strengths, contributions, and complexities that define women.

Each icon within "Unseen" has been carefully chosen to represent the multifaceted nature of being a woman. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Gear: Reflecting the behind-the-scenes ingenuity and problem-solving abilities that drive progress, often without recognition.
  • Steering Wheel: Symbolizing the unseen leadership and direction women provide, steering through life's challenges with resilience and grace.
  • Diamond: A metaphor for the hidden beauty, strength, and value that women embody, often unnoticed yet undeniably precious.
  • Earth: Representing the global influence and nurturing spirit of women, who care for and sustain communities and the environment, frequently without acknowledgment.

"Unseen" is more than an illustration; it is a visual narrative that brings to light the countless contributions of women that often go unnoticed. The monochromatic palette enhances the stark contrast between visibility and invisibility, making it a thought-provoking piece for any setting.

Perfect as a meaningful gift for a loved one or as an empowering addition to your own space, this artwork serves as a daily reminder of the profound impact and silent strength that women bring to the world. Celebrate and honor the unseen yet indispensable qualities of womanhood with this compelling and reflective piece of art.

"She is of the strangest beauty and the darkest courage, and when she walks with intent the earth trembles beneath her feet." ― Nicole Lyons, Hush
