Through understanding history and time, we realize that nothing lasts forever, except what you leave behind. The pinnacle achievements possible in this journey of life are: Peace, Understanding and Love, namely “Coexistence”. This piece represents that ideology in the form of different animals, sharing a space within nature. America is also a good example of “Coexistence”, whereby many different nationalities, religions, and ethnicities try to live, understand, and respect one another in one place. My hope is the world achieves more of this peaceful, worldwide coexistence. I hope the viewer will enjoy this piece as much as I enjoyed creating it. There is a seek and find activity for the viewers, especially children, to find the various animals in the piece. Also, any prize money awarded for the piece, I plan on donating the majority of the proceeds to the Helen DeVos Children’s Hospital.
