"P.L.U.R.: Peace, Love, Unity, Respect"

"PLUR" by Cristina McAllister
Peace. Love. Unity. Respect.
This acronym originated in the rave subculture of the mid 80’s and early 90’s, which was influenced by the hippie peace movement of the 60’s.  It has emerged as a mantra and credo that is relevant to many people seeking to live conscious, connected lives.   
     It is the distillation of the basic ideals that numerous cultures and philosophies have sought to create a harmonious human society.
     It is linked to the notions of the Golden Rule (Treat others and you wish to be treated) and karma – the idea that what you put out into the world will be returned to you.  
      By being mindful of these ideals and applying them to interactions in our daily lives, we can become better people, and make the world a better place for all of us.

This hand-pulled screen print of my original design features a Peace sign, a heart representing Love, and two original icons; a circle of stylized people for Unity and an illustration of the namaste mudra – a gesture of Respect.

This is a variable edition on colored fine art paper, meaning different colors of paper are used throughout the edition.  Image size is 8” x 11.25”  and can be matted to fit a standard 12 x 16 frame.
Each print is numbered, titled and signed.

Now Available at my Etsy Shop!
