Artwork Information

This artwork is a symbol of rising above difficulties. It represents a girl coming out from the ground upside down, her arms still tied down being a part of the ground which represents struggle. But she still rises above to transform into a Lotus which represents a new life and a new beginning.
I created this piece while I was going through really rough times, during which I saw there was no hope. But deep inside I did not want to surrender to the no-hope idea, and I kept telling myself that there will be a rise after each fall. I painted Rebirth to remind me of what will be. Painting it help me go through that phase. And seeing the result made me realize, that I have made it through.
