“Stream of Life” is a personal map that shows my connection to the ocean. Every creature represents a certain period in my life. I begin life as a pearl where I am protected by my parents (represented by the shell). As time moves forward I begin to change. The map ends at a period where I become a young turtle, which is a symbol of motherhood, which is a symbol of motherhood and protection.
