Today’s inspiration

Tragically not even a recent piece of art by Syrian artist Tammam Azzam, but this picture keeps touching me, every time it pops up somewhere and is unfortunately still topical:

With his own way of speaking out, Tammam has painted a superimposed version of ‘The Kiss’ (Gustav Klimt) onto a bombed Syrian building, to highlight the pain and suffering in his country, Syria.

I love how this painting offers us a way of looking for the love stories behind this wall before it was completely obliterated by war machinery. A powerful juxtaposition of beauty and devastation, symbol of faith, hope and love.

When the power of love is greater than the love of power, the world will know peace.

With love,
