This is just a piece of driftwood. The log has been tossed by the waves, and there's a sense that it's been through fire as well, but to me there's something triumphant about that white figure—it reminds me of the statue of liberty, holding aloft the flame of hope. And I love that that figure of hope is what emerges when the protective bark is pared away to expose that which lies beneath.
