"United" is a watercolor painting of humans and animals on a kiwi, which represents the earth. This painting portrays the connection we all have to each other and the earth, a connection that is often lost or not emphasized in western cultures. The use of the kiwi makes fun of the absurdness of the society we have created and makes us question what is real and what matters.
