This symbolizes the importance of duality, understanding that more than one perspective is required to fully understand the whole. The number Seven is symbolic of life, continents, wonders of the world and represents peace and is suggestive of completeness. When combined, the fourteen pieces aim to visually represent not only the impacts of climate change but also the power of Unity when faced with environmental Global challenges. The pieces aim to represent not only the dark, but the beauty and impact of a collective consciousness in the light.
