Old warrior and child - COOL STUFF MAN
Old Warrior and Child
The men in my family, specifically the older generation, experienced hardships and violence in ways that laced a dangerous anger into their DNA. It ensured survival. However, it also poisoned them and would explode like a bomb without warning. This illustration shows a warrior who's let go of the past for the future.
