This is a body positive button pin. It is inspired by my encounter with a sunflower patch last summer. Where the true essence of the sunflower is revealed after its petals have faded and dried under the hot sun. This is when it bears its’ fruit — nourishing sunflower seeds nested in the head of the sunflower. It provides new seed for the next generation of sunflowers, and some nourishment for us too. In some cultures, this ageing process is celebrated in similar ways.
A place where ageing is seen as vital for community enrichment. It is celebrated and valued.
