Shakil Akram Khan’s stained-glass like design is a tessellation made from two simple words that convey the message of peace and harmony for all humanity. The words are 'LIVE' and 'LOVE'. The word tiles are crafted from a full spectrum of colours denoting the beautiful differences between people, but they are identical in shape to symbolize equality and the fundamental fact that we are all the same. The words fit together perfectly without leaving any gaps. This suggests that all of humanity is one united family and that we are all very close to each other. The words can be read right-side up and up-side down to convey a message of universal brotherhood, held by each of us, even those from the opposite side of the world.
