The Story: Love is a beautiful thing that is guaranteed to change you. Hidden in this piece is an Arabic poem expressing the power of the force of love, covered by the feminine and masculine colors. This piece is dedicated to the unity of a couple in love no matter what their sex, race or religion is.
The dried rose petals are shown in whole and as ashes reflecting how experiences of love can simultaneously bring you alive as well as burn you like a Phoenix.
