Peace by JoJoesArt Peace by JoJoesArt
- Is war the answer,
is hate the way?
Is life just a game
of predator and prey?

Give me your hand,
feel my heart beat,
put down your weapons
and let us make peace.

For we both know,
we can't hide,
we might die together,
if we chose to fight. -

---

My newest piece in my "Symbols of Life Series", the symbol is "Peace". I loved working on this one. I feel like the message of the artwork is so important in our current world, with all those wars and rumors of wars going on. 

I would love to hear your opinion about what this piece says to you! :heart:

Took me a while to realise it, but I can see the  symbols of everything that you're trying to demonstrate clearly.
Peace (That chicken foot print in a circle, right? I can't describe it very well. XD)
Yin and Yang (By far my favourite)
Kinship, Brotherhood, Family (The heart of the Lions)
Bonds for eternity, eternal love (The infinity koi fish?)
I don't know the Deer sign though.

Yep you are right :D The deers are the circle symbol and they represent the circle of life being love (because without love between individuals there would be no offspring and thus no continuation of life) :)

A beautiful piece that is definitely well done. Why did the tiger or the left a male masculinity, you also manage to give the Tiger on the right a femininity quality representing both male and female alike very very well done.

Ah the song 'Brother my brother' came into my mind, as I saw this!

Especially this part from the song:
Brother My Brother
Tell me what are we fighting for
Isn’t life worth so much more?
We should love one another
Oh can’t we just pretend
This war never began?

Beautiful drawing!!

I did not notice that it was the peace symbol until you said it in the description, and then I was like "Ohhhhhhhhh! That's so cooooool!"

You're doing a great job with this series, Jo! Keep creating awesome stuff!

I love this sort of artwork. Wonderful concept and idea :3 I also find it very fitting to choose the tiger for war and fight...as it is often symbolized with struggle. And the dove on top of that also has a very strong symbolism. Wonderful idea.
