Humans identify people, places, events and things with symbolic meanings. For example, a four-leafed clover symbolizes good luck to some folks. We express the invisible or intangible by means of visible representations. Conventional or traditional signs are often used to represent
divine beings, spirits or certain emotions. CHAL members are invited to submit 2D artwork in any media, including photography, using the theme, Symbolism.
