The four works are based around the traditional Zen symbol for the completeness of the universe – the Ensō (literally, circular form). Each panel represents one of the four elements of earth, water, air & sun, the balance of which is essential to maintain a healthy environment for all life, now and for future generations. 

The symbolism provides a powerful icon but, as UN Secretary-General António Guterres recently declared, carving a better future won’t happen on its own: we have to be intentional, purpose-driven and downright stubborn about our objective.
