Bird of Freedom

Damashi Kahandawela, Sarah Evans, Amy Evans

The centrepiece of our design is a singular dove incorporating geometric, graphic shapes that are drawn to form a tribal design. The spiral in the centre of each wing represents inequality and there appears to be a human figure reaching out from the spiral design. The three circles at the tip of the wing are repreated inverted at the bottom of the wing to represent balance. The need for peace to radiate and spread throughout the world is represented with the circles radiating from the dove. Our design represents peace and freedom which needs to be recognised more often around us.
