A collage of many different fabrics, adorned with semiprecious stones and wooden beads, resembling an unimaginable diversity. As a reaction to endangered species in flora and fauna around the world, and the news about fear for other cutures, I made this piece. To celebrate diversity. We live in times of growing monocultures in agriculture, that endanger species and with that our health. We live in times of immigration and commuting, causing great cultural diversity thats colours our cities. This piece emphasizes on the beauty and the unexpected that nature and cultures offer as we give them space to be, to mix, to evolve. Let us not focus on fear and the differences but celebrate and embrace diversity to give room to an uimaginable blend of enexpected beauty and surprise. To have a healthy environment and vibrant cities with a dazzling culture mix in music, food and lifestyle, with a lust for life.
