Peacock Arts District (PAD) Banner Contest

The background features a hard, concrete like texture that represents the tea cup’s literal background history – hard and unforgiving, yet it’s overshadowed by the radiant rays and glow of spiritual enlightenment, fighting for focus on the center stage of the tea cup’s mind.
The layering of these elements speaks onto history that is still present and visible in our everyday lives, but overtaken by contemplation, will, and help from a higher power.
