“Moma means young woman in Bulgarian. This artwork represents beauty and respect for life in all forms, from sea to land, from fish to human beings. The geometry in the background is an ancient symbol for prosperity, wellbeing, and luck, as it is found in many cultures around the globe.” – JahOne
“Moma significa giovane donna in bulgaro. Quest'opera rappresenta la bellezza e il rispetto per la vita in tutte le sue forme, dal mare alla terra, dai pesci agli esseri umani. La geometria sullo sfondo è un antico simbolo di prosperità, benessere e fortuna, come si trova in molte culture in tutto il mondo”. – JahOne
