Pacific: What's happening in this world?!

What's happening in this world?!

40x40cm, acrylic, canvas. 2017

A symbol of peace. The hippies call it Pacifik. A colored circle with eyes and mouth. He put his head in his hands. The symbol of the world is terrified by the actions of people.

Pacifik - the symbol of peace - grabbed his head in horror at what he sees today on Earth.

"Gerald Herbert Holtom (1914 – 1985) was a British artist and designer. He designed the ND logo ("pacific"), which was adopted, non-exclusively, by the British Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND), and became an international peace symbol.
On 21 February 1958 he designed the nuclear disarmament logo for the first Aldermaston March, organised by the Direct Action Committee against Nuclear War (DAC) in Easter 1958 (4–7 April).
The logo was not copyrighted and later became known in the wider world as a general-purpose peace symbol. The design was a combination of the letters "N" (two arms outstretched pointing down at 45 degrees) and "D" (one arm upraised above the head) of the flag semaphore alphabet, standing for nuclear disarmament."
