Where the needle goes, there is the thread

Ukrainian proverb that describes the inseparable bond between two people - husband and wife. Where one person follows another in views, actions, and deeds.
Unfortunately, because of the war, this connection was broken. Millions of families were forced to separate.
This tragedy is expressed in the image of a Ukrainian woman who holds a separate needle and thread. This woman is the guardian of the family. Around her neck is a traditional necklace with a Dunia amulet, a symbol of unity. And around her is thick smoke, symbolizing the uncertainty of the future human destiny.
