Yin Yang stamp by ilaaaria



“...in divinity opposites are always reconciled.” 
― Walter M. Miller Jr., Saint Leibowitz and the Wild Horse Woman

“In the end there is only light and dark. And the two are not so far apart.” 
― Thomas Lloyd Qualls, Waking Up at Rembrandt's

“Absurdity and anti—absurdity are the two poles of creative energy.” 
― Karl Lagerfeld

“Without injustices,
the name of justice
would mean what?” 
― Heraclitus, Fragments

“In order to eat, you have to be hungry. In order to learn, you have to be ignorant. Ignorance is a condition of learning. Pain is a condition of health. Passion is a condition of thought. Death is a condition of life.” 
― Robert Anton Wilson, Leviathan




The THEME is 



☯️DUALITY OF THE WORLD☯️



What is DUALITY? If there are two sides to a coin, metaphorically speaking, there's a duality, or you can say a YIN YANG concept.


Peace and War
Life and Death
Good and Evil
Light and Darkness

Love and Hate

Up and Down 

Ice and Fire

Happiness and Sadness

Heart and Mind

Black and White  etc.  

...are dualities.


#1 So, what you have to do in this contest is to portray a pair of opposites, their unity and struggle... 

You may use the examples listed above, or come up with your own dual pair. 

A pair you used must be displayed in the title of your work, or in the description. 

You may also give us a short explanation of your concept, if you want. It's a philosophical contest, so let's philosophize;)




Here are some awesome works from DA gallery for your inspiration. Don't copy please.
