    if its any sort of traditional symbol i missed it, but it looks to me that its open to interpretation as being one of several things...what catches my eye immediately is a peace symbol made with inverted crosses (there is an urban legend that the peace symbol originated from breaking the arms of a cross or some such bullshit...perhaps this peice carries some sort of satirical meaning to it's maker)

    i could also see it as a peace symbol with three symbols of femininity/venus laid on top of it

    i'm sure there's other ways of looking at it, but i haven't caught them yet. ah, gestalt psychology, how it loves to fuck with our heads...

    woa so your telling me it could even have an ironic meaning to it. I think it may be one of a kind cuz on the back of it is the letters "Y Z" so maybe its the person who made its signature?

    its possible, but then it's also possible that the Y and Z have some other meaning to them not immediately apparent to the average person. after all, its very rare to meet someone with those initials. the world is full of symbolism that is largely missed on a day to day basis.

    hehe so much of art is open to interpretation, luckily what's most important in this situation is what it means to you...

    I'm with tigerlily there! I was going along a peace among women thing in my head. Heh. I really like that, it's certainly got something about it.
