When he learned that a cultural solidarity event would be organized in favor of people diagnosed with the Filum Disease, the Brazilian Jonas Ribeiro sent a drawing to the CSSf. It was his way of contributing his bit to a cause in which he feels personally involved.
Ribeiro shows a drawing created especially for this event, with the title Hope. In the drawing we can see “a pilgrim travelling on the road of life, here represented by the colour green”. This pilgrim “is searching for the summit of the world, represented in the dark and celeste blue, the light of HOPE, yellow as a sun held by a heavenly arm, symbolizing the synchrony between the hand of God and the surgical skill of the physician”, as the artist explains.
For Brazilian Jonas Ribeiro art is a hobby through which he expresses his thoughts and expectations.
