关 /guān/ means TO CLOSE, but it is also part of the word A RELATIONSHIP 关系 /guānxi/.
When I showed this animation to my grandmother – very talented and in some areas quite well known sculptress and painter (her name is Otilie Suterova) – she said that it is extremely exciting how the character actually looks like a relationship.
And she send me her version of the character the very same day.
I’m happy to present it here because she has had a very big influence on me, I respect her a lot and it’s a pleasure to show her work to you.
