the statue

It's hollow inside means that it must be filled to achieve its full potential.
The large hands symbolise a helper; someone who reaches out to people in need, someone with whom people can make contact, someone who can console and protect. They also represent the large range of different partners involved in the project.



It's two gigantic feet, symbolise its movement. He travels from city to city to spread warmth, wherever it is needed.
When he is no longer needed, he moves on, looking for new places to visit and people to help.

The open head reminds us that thoughts are never locked in as they can move freely. People are encouraged to dream and develop their own aspirations; a symbol of hope and evolution of great things to come. 
In the middle of the statue you can find the heart: a hatch through which children can deposit their dreams, hopes and desires.
