This piece expresses the beauty of selflessness. It is configured with patterns of tectonic geometrical shapes to encapsulate the different stages of performing an altruistic act—to give from caring for the welfare of others, at one’s own expense, resulting in a ‘warm glow’. Patterns are expressed in vibrant colours, symbolising the state and emotion from the selfless act.
