“The art project inspires new awareness for social and environmental issues around the world utilizing the power of image. Humanity is invited to begin to embrace its wonderful diversity if we are going to survive as a species, let us start today. The installation encourages humanity to reflect on our religious practice and rejoice in our commonality. This New Art Project for Peace invites the viewer to become acquainted with the fascinating world of spiritual imagery and to understand its hidden message, and the relevance it has for our contemporary society.
The Art might make us uncomfortable when we see Buddha next to Christ and Mohammad next to Confucius. BUT The plant and animal Kingdom evolve with relatively little greed, jealousy, or oppression around them, why not humans?”

The installation is an iconostasis consisting of 40 prayer wheels and 27 images representing 5,000 years of spirituality and human history spanning 7 continents. In Eastern Christianity, an iconostasis is a wall of icons and religious paintings that separate the nave from the sanctuary in a church. It is created for meditation and prayer which encourages humanity from all religions and beliefs to break free what divides us. Its aim is to align our thinking with that of great teachers and philosophers promoting peace on earth and the idea we are all one. Peace and Hope for a Better World.
