Bravery – is having courage in the face of fear, whether that fear is from physical, emotional, or social sources. Bravery is not a lack of being afraid. It’s being afraid and doing the right thing anyway.
Symbolism In The Art Print
In the Bravery Art print, you will see a comparison of opposites. The sun and moon represent the light (Good) that can be found day or night, while the earth enshrouded in darkness (Evil) acknowledges that our world is not perfect, often times presenting situations that require bravery. True bravery can be found on the brightest day and during the darkest night. It does not hide in the face of necessary conflict nor does it compromise its value structure to avoid an uncomfortable moment. Bravery is a necessary part of every person that pursues an honorable and respectable life.
The swords represent the violence and conflict a warrior faces when engaging in the noble defense of those they care for, those that deserve defending but are unable to defend themselves, or their personal value structure. In a world where evil can and does initiate brutality, it falls to venerable warriors to bravely meet that violence and destroy it. Thus, the sheaths beneath the swords represent an end to violence. It is just as important for the warrior to know when to cease violence so that peace can flourish. This should be the end goal of their courageous actions.
