LIVING CORNERSTONE I
Acrylics on canvas with augmented reality, 2020, 160cm x 180cm
Rocks symbolize more than just solidity and strength; they embody the essence of a robust foundation essential for every individual. In the intricate tapestry of life, upbringing and education serve as the cornerstone, shaping one's character and resilience. Proverbs 24:3-5 eloquently underscores this, affirming that wisdom builds the house, understanding establishes it, and knowledge adorns its rooms with precious and pleasant riches. This biblical truth echoes in 1 Peter 2:4-6 (TPT), emphasizing the significance of a chosen and priceless cornerstone in Zion, instilling unwavering faith.
As children are nurtured with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, they transform into precious and pleasant riches. Their self-awareness, grounded in the understanding of their inherent worth, propels them toward healthy adulthood. The ripple effect extends to the formation of wholesome families and, consequently, robust societies. A childhood anchored in a solid foundation enables children to not only thrive but also embark on fulfilling destinies.
The Living Cornerstone I's augmented reality layer serves as a beacon, radiating the profound message of hope and joy in nurturing future generations. The vibrant red flowers within this augmented reality embody the spirit of children—symbolizing passion, vitality, and life itself. Their collective growth mirrors a harmonious ensemble, flourishing atop a foundation of strength. Just as each bloom contributes to the overall beauty, so do nurtured children enrich the fabric of society, cultivating a future marked by promise and potential.
