The purpose of my piece, “Unity”, is to establish a common ground for people in our society. The three women standing straight up with hollow eyes are there to represent different ethnic backgrounds united together by a warm purple line, and have hollow eyes to represent the openness of their souls. They are willing to let anyone into their hearts. The women on the bottom who are upside down with green eyes represent the people who seclude themselves and leave no room for new hearts, people, and experiences. “United we stand. Divided we fall!” It is the truth.
