We all hope for the same

This work can be easily explained by its title, We all hope for the same ‘thing’. The work shows traditional mosaic art that can be found within Muslim continents, Mahatma G (or Gandhi G) makes an appearance at the bottom of the work, shrouded in flowers with a cow adorned in love hearts next to him. In Hindu religion the cow is held in a very high esteem, as it helps people with many sources of food (dairy products), and cows are considered to be more like a pet in the Indian, Nepali regions.

To the top where Samuel L Jackson resides, with angry birds, Iphone lipstick etc, this is meant to be symbolic of western religion being consumerism. In the center Buddha Shakyamuni Resides. In summary the painting is saying that, despite of where we come from, or what we do, we all hope for the same happiness in life, the same inner peace.
