Artistic Expressions

A small sample from among the countless artistic expressions created by individuals and communities around the world for the occasion of the bicentenary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh.

Wood carving symbolizes unity in diversity

A well-known artist in the town of Castel d’Ario, Italy, sculpted a wooden board made of images connected to the theme of unity in diversity and to the life of Bahá’u’lláh. The townspeople were invited to paint the board in a public space where they could also learn about the bicentenary celebrations. The final work of art, exhibited near the local government house, is the outcome of a collective endeavour. Through the process by which it was made and the themes it addresses, this piece symbolises unity in diversity.
