054 "WorldPeace Insignia"
WorldPeace Insignia Full Image
x 18" / Oil on Canvas
by John WorldPeace
A partial interpretation from the artist transient
Insignia is a round symbol, with a hand in the middle
(symbolizing man - the number 5), which represents a human
being. Red is the color of human blood. Where two fingers
stand for peace, four fingers and a thumb mean WorldPeace.
When this connection is made within the world community,
people will think about WorldPeace every time they wave
hello or goodbye.
Behind the hand is a yin-yang symbol. This
signifies the constant change in all dimensions and
all aspects of this reality, where things constantly
manifest and constantly disintegrate, causing never-ending
disharmony. There will never be perfect peace on earth
because things will never quit changing.
The yin-yang symbol is in green and blue, which
represents the planet (blue sky - green earth). The
yin-yang symbol represents the duality of all things
as they constantly encroach upon each other. The blue
is constantly invading the green. Within the blue is
contained green and within the green is contained blue.
Within the darkest night, there is light and within
the brightest day there is darkness.
Around the earth colored yin-yang is a yellow
band, which indicates the physical sun behind the blue
and green earth. The sun is the light of the physical
world and also represents the spiritual light of all
the founders of all the major world religions.
The black band around the sun represents both
the physical universe (which is actually indigo or beige
depending on which scientist you listen to) and the
spiritual universe from which all things manifest and
back into which all things disintegrate.
The overall symbol is round and represents
the “no beginning - no ending” oneness (unity)
of all things.
Therefore, this insignia
represents not only peace during this Iraqi crisis,
but also an ongoing statement of peace and WorldPeace
for all times. With or without war, we must be constantly
mindful that all things change. The only way we can
find peace is to acknowledge this never-ending change.
We must remain vigilant in our attempt to minimize the
disharmony caused by change.
