"Heaven and Hell", painted by a 28-year old man, depicts
positive and negative aspects of himself.
He discovered that each flower symbolised a positive quality
in himself with which he had not previously identified.
Acknowledging these strengths enabled him to accept and
deal with his "dark side", depicted in red and black.
He used the Yin-Yang symbol to integrate "Good" and
"Bad", separated by the "River of Life".
For him, this was a powerful symbol of Wholeness.
