This fabulous image sums it all! Congratulations to the maker.
Relevant image with a poignant story to tell.
Cleverly conceived and well executed.
A message of hope in the time of crisis.

It is wonderful to see an image that symbolises so many factors in our lives at this time. It is something different and out of the box. The composition works perfectly and close attention was paid to detail.
