    This is great – striking. Why does this have to be ‘breeding the colour out’? Can’t it be mixing the races to make a whole new beautiful breed of people with interesting stories to tell?

    Controversial, political, well executed – like lots of good art.

    To me, the image says is that love is a powerful and visceral emotion that transcends the constraints of cultural, political and religious dogma.

    Great Spirit allows all that occurs..I think it must have a plan or at least it enjoys creating chaos..Let the chips fall where they may?
