Story of my life:
I imagined that three strands of soft (Yin) cotton braided into a single rope which pierces into the hard oak (Yang) shaft of a cane – carved from one piece of oak. The rope plunges into the darkness (Yin) of the cane and found it scary and emerges into light (Yang) symbolizing our quest through life. Life takes me through many such ventures into the not-so-good or even bad (Yang). As I manage to survive and return to light (Yang) my rope depicts many such experiences through life, but arrive at the end into the safety of light (Yang) and be able to stand in its three basic elements (father, mother and me).
