Forgotten Flags

This series is an acknowledgment of the universal continuum of caring and courage.
Once during a teaching the Dalai Lama said “don’t forget the endless caring that supports our world. Remember please the mouths that are filled, the bodies that are washed, the compassion that constantly happens even among animals as they nurture their young. It sustains our world.” He also asked us to recall the fearless acts of selfless bravery people demonstrate in the face of emergency.

The work honours the unsung women and men who are forgotten by history. Although their names are unknown to us they leave a profound legacy of great benefit. Each piece in the series is a flag or a banner, an acknowledgment of their contributions.
