This piece was inspired by images of people on rafts, ducking under mangrove branches as they crossed the Naf River, fleeing Myanmar for the refugee camps of Bangladesh.
The Naf, which empties into the Bay of Bengal in the Indian Ocean, is a mixture of fresh- and saltwater. There, mangrove trees are able to thrive.
This is a piece about the human spirit; about resilience. So I'm adding it to my collection for the National Centre for Truth & Reconciliation. $215 from its sale will benefit this good work.
