Compassion

Compassion – is being kind to those less powerful, less fortunate, and less capable than you. Both heroes and villains are individuals of action and violence. Compassion is the difference between the two.

Symbolism In The Art Print

In the Compassion art print, you will see three cherry blossoms attached to a branch. The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. These three cherry blossoms, each at a different stage of development, represent the range of life from birth to death. Thus, just as in the Japanese culture, the cherry blossoms are a reminder that life can be overwhelmingly beautiful, yet also tragically short. The branch represents the companionship that binds us together in this life. By being compassionate, both to ourselves and to each other, we can support our connections to, and our companionship with, one another in ways that will elevate and better us all.
