The Constitution of South Africa was approved in 1996 and came into effect in 1997. Goje’s work comments on the optimism in South Africa during this time: the bird, signifying freedom, lays an olive branch, signifying peace, into open hands. The work's title speaks to a newfound responsibility to build a fair society after years of strife.
