“BALI, a special vortex where the elements of Nature, Tree or River, where a smile of a child or the wrinkles of labour, let the soul of all beings express its divine. Who hasn’t dreamt to come or come back to the island of Gods to feel this special connection we have lost living busy lives in our material world?
Get inspired by the fantastic resilience of the Balinese, who have captured from crisis the wisdom to overcome with creativity. Participating as a voter will keep the feeling of connection going.
Buying a piece of Art will support Dignity, Environment and Hope.
Let’s share beautiful captured moments or wander through the eyes of the artists while travelling is still complicated. More than ever I invite you to join us in this photo contest, waking up this mysterious feeling, connecting to the Sacred and nourishing it again.“
