Considered an ancient nomad, a traveler always moving, always on a quest, the zebra is a master of balance and a symbol for individuality. We can learn from the zebra spirit that we must be ready to accept alternative viewpoints and new ideas; that there is more that one way of looking at things. They remind us to be unique and embrace our differences. They symbolize the balance of light and darkness, equal to the balance of the yin & yang giving us peace and harmony in how we view the world. They help us look at everything with clarity teaching us that we can handle everything with a collected mind. They call upon us to find value in others and utilize everything well for our happiness and survival. Can’t we learn the simple truth by studying the zebra that there is strength in numbers? There is still hope for our future but we must act quickly. One of the greatest challenges of our time is the need to address climate change. From an artistic perspective it is my belief that through our artistic expression, we can help bring about a positive change.
