The focal point of the painting is the Nina Cosmica, the cosmic child, a symbol of knowledge of the universe. The painting also addresses unity and taking care of the earth as it celebrates the religion of family. See the photos below for details of the painting. The title of the book in the painting translates as “Liberation Through Knowledge.” The text of the book in the painting translates as “We ask our children not to forget to inform their children– How to join together! How to Rise up! How to achieve power and how to complete our village! Your great destiny!” (Source: Dedication Plaque)
