"We may be as day and night,
as different as black and white,
yet there is no reason here
to fight a war because of fear.

Cause you’re just you and I am me,
come, open up your eyes and see,
that no matter how different,
it’s love that binds us in the end."


There is so many fights going on in our world today, so many wars and hatred. Most times it is just because of differences, different beliefs, different looks, different cultures and traditions. Differences seem to scare us humans, as we cant predict or understand them sometimes, but in the end they make our lives so much richer and diverse. 

Love is the answer. As always. We can and should try to love everyone, maybe not their actions or views, but them as individuals. That would solve all problems...

What do you think? What do you see in this picture? :)

I love this piece.In my eyes, it represents how the sun and the moon are the yin and yang. This shows that everything truly is equal, and that the sun and moon will clash. But the love stays the same throughout. The heart is a nice addition and it really brings out the mane at the top. The hair flows are even opposite, which I feel shows that even though they are similar, they will have their own differences. Light and dark, just an illusion, until you see if brushed across a canvas, and into to heart. This work is excellent. Even if the love is broken, it will someday collide again.

Oh, this time they actually seem to not be getting along, which is common among brothers.

As for what you said about love being the answer, I agree to a certain extent. However, allow me to quote the show Alnoah.Zero:

"Warfare is nothing but a means of negotiation between states. Wars break out even when there is no hatred. Territory, resources, or interests that you are determined to own. Ideology, religion, pride. Wars are fought over those objectives all the time. Meaning that when those objectives are met, the war will end. That, or the war will end when the human cost outweighs the gains. Anger and hatred are only tools to tilt a war in your favor. I'm not interested in those emotions. So I wouldn't hate anyone just because they're Martian."

I really love this piece. It's gorgeous in so many ways, from the meaning and emotion it conveys, to the technique, and the colors, this is amazing. I especially like how the 2 lions aren't exactly the same, or symmetrical. The manes are different, and so are the facial expressions among other details. Great work!

Completely agree. War often starts already when two people have the same goal, but want to go two different way ... And do not see that the other complementary to itself, is.Birb intensifies

Beautiful artwork :) Love the expressions, the fur and the way you made them look so very different, but still obviously of the same animal race.

In regards to your standpoint:
I agree with your overall philosophy, but when one group of people want to determine how you should live, act, work, love etc. understanding and trust is impossible. In general  - If people leave me be, I will respect them. But governments, police, rules, taxes, laws...they all do only one thing - oppress people. How do you understand and respect those who oppress you?

(Im an anarchist - not left-winged or right-winged, I dont belive in ANY form of government - so for me peace and true respect are reserved for a few. Those who leave me live the life I choose. Those are unfortunately very few)

Wow...Stunning...and on every levels.
Too often I found than people corrupt their arts and change it from the spiritual and personal expression of themselves and what's inside of them, into a kind of pornography of colors and shapes for the entertainment of others.
A bit like when a musician isn't playing his music and his songs but instead play songs of another artist often much more famous, for having more money and please more the people listening...
What a mistake to do that I found, greed and money should never be the primary motivation when it come to do something as wonderful and sacred as art is.

I see many things in this picture, ying and yang, day and night, male and female...the duality of life, the symmetry of the universe.
Yet as in nature all opposites and all different forms of life lives in perfect harmony, from Chaos naturally comes Order.
Like in a Tornado eye where everything is still as death while on the outside of the tornado violent winds are raging and destroying everything.

This picture illustrate perfectly this and the fact than the opposite may be different but at their core are the same.
Positive and negative are both required for the energy to exist without one or the other it wouldn't be.
You need 2 faces in order for a page of paper to exist and even if the faces are different at the same time they are the same.
I think it's the same for everything, when you reach a certain level of understanding of life and reality you have to go beyond logic, like in quantum physics where a particle is and isn't at 2 different places at the same time,where a particle is and isn't a particle...at the same time it can be a wave and/or a particle.

Ultimately the connections of everything to everything become "clear" (what a joke) or more precisely accepted...despite a non linear and non logic understanding.
