Artist Statement:

The piece I have entered is called ‘The Fifth Element.’ The necklace with the red represents fire, how as the blue is shown for water, the green for earth and the purple is for air. The amber piece is a reference to the movie ‘The Fifth Element’ in which this necklace represents the element of love.

Artwork Dimensions: 26 inches long x 2 inches wide
