The caption, "Starting fresh, yet rooted in the past - The immigrant story told through wood and metal," references the idea that when immigrating, one may feel as though they are starting over in a new place. However, even though they are creating a fresh start, their roots and heritage remain with them. The image of the wooden formation with metallic pipes symbolizes this idea, with the wooden pieces representing the individual's past and the metal pieces symbolizing their new surroundings. Despite the emptiness that may come with starting anew, the individual retains the essence of their past and can fill their new life with it without losing their identity.
