Water Drip – Start of the year and half Swastika

We had a dripping roof in the studio.  We put up a bit of market stall tarp to push the water down the wall rather than on the desk.  It looked like the start of the American flag so I asked Adam who was on work experience to paint the blue square and 50 swastikas.  This was referring to American needing peace and to stop going to war in different countries. Tragen the wood worker took offence as he was part jewish, as am I.  He said it only meant bad things.  This was the start of a year and a half journey researching the history of the swastika and the true meaning of the shape.  Educating people as I went about how beautiful this symbol has been for over 10,000 years, not just the last 100 years since the war. Thanks Dave.
