How to promote peace? Wear a peace scarf: Peace is a Puzzle

How to promote peace? Wear a Peace Scarf.

How do we achieve world peace? How do we have peaceful classrooms? How do we promote peace in our homes? As I pondered the challenge of peace while designing with the word peace, I kept bumping up against these puzzling questions. So how does one solve a puzzle? By turning the pieces every which way, examining their characteristics, trying them here and there to see if they fit, both physically and visually. How can I apply this strategy to peace making?

By rotating the word peace and its mirror, blue/green and orange/yellow pinwheels are created. This unexpected movement keeps the design dynamic while the white squares keep it stable. Is not dynamic stability what we desire in a peaceful relationship, be it personal or national? The color scheme represents the whole spectrum so no color group is left out of this peace vision.
