The dotted line represents the song, and a filled in line represents song & choreography. The white dot represents all the number one hit singles they created (clearly, most of their songs reached the top of the charts) The diamonds represent the three main concerts the Power Girls performed at, indicating which songs were performed, progressing by year.

Two hundred vacuformed grenades create dove wings for peace. For imprisoned lives that do not have the freedom to escape, for children unluckily born in the wrong time and place, and innocent lives wasted on a forsaken planet, the wings make a bold and unequivocal statement about the beauty and dream of peace and in contrast, the loathsome inhumanity of war. A sculpture and fashion piece symbolic of a hope to break free and rise above the culture of hate, oppression and war.
