Choice is the change one can create
Change is the difference of life remade.
Difference is the love one can gain
Love is a cycle that returns again.
The dove presents a promise, the hope that there is a better future. Its symbolic presence presents an assurance that there shall be no more fighting amidst the nation; all at war is now at peace. All that was bitter are remade in the freshness of its synonymous interpretations. This dove here is portrayed as the fauna of freedom
The stalk of wheat is a reminder of humility, for even the tiniest grain in Cambodia is treasured by those who cannot be assured of it. The process of harvesting even a grain is long and painful, yet its benefits as a dietary staple are consumed without a second thought. The wheat here is portrayed as the flora of freedom.
Yet, the unity of both the symbolic pieces serves as a message, the story of how Cambodia has risen from its fall, its long journey back to its former glory and splendour, the direct connection between the two symbolic implications, connected and made possible only by the one who wears it.
May the wearer remember Cambodia’s need for support every time the brass dove and wheat are intertwined and be an ambassador of this message to others through the same two symbols.
