This very serene panda was apparently intended as a stress reducer for viewers. According to the artist, "My panda symbolizes prayers ascending to heaven filled with faith, hope, goodwill, and accepting toleration. Nothing today is as black and white as the large carefree pandas, so each balloon is painted a different color representing diversity. The rainbow painted ears are a sign of peace and the clouds are just a temporary factor. A simple design and concept to remind us that life should not be so complex and filled with anxiety."
