‘Sprout’ is an abstract form of a beginning of new potentials. ‘Sprout’ is inspired by observing shoots of plants. ‘Sprout,’ however, tries to offer a broader interpretation that is not limited to capturing a snap shot of growing plants. The abstract form represents growing of various values that are vital in shaping our evolving lives. Some values may be firmly built and shared, while some may be still in early stages. How the values may fruit may depend largely on how we raise and care for them.
