Using the four seasons and their change, these posters symbolise the four successive stages of human life. Within the design, the circle stands for the cycle of growth and decay like the tree symbolises the perfection of life. Instead of the tree trunks, words express the state humans find themselves in at a particular stage of their development. The intention of the posters is to encourage us to be conscious about this natural progression and to live in the present.
