“Sisu”  (meaning)
“Extraordinary determination, courage and resoluteness in the face of extreme adversity. An action mindset which enables individuals to reach beyond their present limitation, take action against all odds and transform barriers into frontiers. An integral element of Finnish culture and also a universal capacity which all we share”
This concept is strengthen by the Phoenix myth, the bird that rise to a brand new life from its own ashes.
This artwork is dedicated to a dear friend who had faced the unpredictable and has had the strength to go on. This is for Sarah.
