'Unity In Diversity'

by Daunya Ma'ani-Hessari


My design was inspired by the rainbow world that we live in; the different skin colours, religious beliefs, backgrounds, nationalities, classes, creeds, culture and how in one way or another we are all linked,
'...the earth is but one country, and mankind its citizens...'

The handprints symbolize all these differences that mankind have, and will always have, and how we need to become united together to establish a harmonious coexistence.

The symbols on the hands illustrate some of the many religions that are present in today's society as well as the religious symbols there are also internationally recognized signs that embody the vision of a peaceful and united future for all.
