“The Prayer of Surrender: Pagdayeg, Pagsalig, ug Paghiusa.”
A piece about faith, hope, unification, and consolidation.
The subject depicts a praying hand, imposing the idea of faith and hope. “Pagdayeg ug Pagsalig.” But when observed upside down, the subject also shows two people holding hands, imposing the idea of Love, Consolidation, and Unification. “Paghiusa.” I also love how it forms a shape of a house, suggesting the idea that faith, hope, and love starts, or should start, and be cultivated in every home.
