like bearer of merits and promoter of Human Rights.
A big butterfly expands in the centre covering the world
and the universe, represented with dark colours on
Her body is an athlete, symbol of participant countries
at the Olympics, who has in her hand the Olympic Torch.
From her chest, in the centre there is the symbol of
Olympic Truce, which starts to shine of lights, to carry
the message of a new hope.
The wings of the butterfly have different images inside,
selected between some paintings produced during the
workshop, that represent the hope of a better world from
young artists’ prospective.
A dark shadow, you can see in the background, wraps
images which represent child labour.
