I found present in the poem elements such as softness, strength, beauty, symbolism, harmony with nature, connection with everything around, relation to the earth, the assertiveness of being alive and in existence. These elements translate to my artwork: A cathartic moment occurred.... strength and energy transformed her to become the Olive Tree symbol of Resilience, résistance and determination, facing all sorts of injustices, entrenching deeply her roots into her land, proudly holding her history, culture and heritage on her shoulders, holding tight her unalienable Rights for Liberty
