Artwork of painted and stencilled elements on paper. The paper is made up of multiple small images and advertisments and was originally a piece of 'mail art' Morris received in the post in the 1990s. In the centre of the artwork is a black shape outlined in blue paint. A red koru-like shape has been painted on top of the black shape. It is an abstration of a parent and child holding one another and stands for the love that exists between the two. Morris has surrounded this central element with stencils of the symbol he has developed to represent fascism.
