The first two paintings of respect (above and to the left) were showing the vases leaving only footprints on the ground as they rocketed above the earth. Their fuel came from within. Their inner stars pushed out revealing outwardly their inner selves.
Their fuel came from within.
Each vase was shouldering against the other in mid air.
These are very complex concepts to express. So I did not put these paintings in the library exhibit for children.
Rethinking the symbols I came up with one that was wide and flowed up in a cylinder.
It deviated from the vertical moving aside to make room for one that was skinny and spiraling outwards until it realized it was going to collide.
To prevent conflict it respected the space of the wide blue flowing vase and took a different path as well.
