Patterns and symbols.

This is Azucena's minimalist take on the basic building block of our sacred symbols, the triangle. This backbone design inspires strength in unity; deatsaà means my back, beatsaà means my brother. May we all come together as a big human family once again, with all of our issues and longing for acceotance, just the way it is for our nuclear family.
