Description: the artistist crafted a mesmerizing scene that invites viewers to embark on a journey of discovery and wonder. At its center, a magnificent, larger-than-life mushroom serves as a unique vessel for a majestic seahorse.
What makes this seahorse extraordinary is the snail shell that it carries upon its back, functioning as a whimsical and enchanting lighthouse.The symbolism here is rich and profound. The seahorse, often associated with grace and serenity, carries the weight of a snail shell, representing the artist's journey through life. At the tender age of 19, the artist ventured to a foreign country, alone and independent.The snail shell serves as a beacon of guidance, illuminating the path forward even in the vast and mysterious expanse of space. It symbolizes the artist's resilience and determination to find their way in a new and unfamiliar world.Surrounding this central scene are asteroids that add an element of cosmic adventure to the composition. They symbolize the challenges and obstacles that the artist faced when they moved to a different country to study, far from the comforting presence of their parents.
Yet, like the seahorse, the artist's spirit soars with determination, confidently navigating the cosmos of life.This artwork encapsulates the profound themes of independence, courage, and the quest for identity that define the artist's coming-of-age journey. It's an invitation to embrace the unknown, find light in unexpected places, and embark on an odyssey filled with beauty and possibility.
