Peace, also known as Perfect Peace Broken Peace by Rosemarie Adcock is an allegorical painting showing 2 young women holding peace lilies. The first woman holds 2 lilies, a symbol of "perfect peace" as in Hebrew perfect peace would be written "peace peace." The second woman holds a single peace lily, broken at the stem, a symbol of her "broken peace", or anxiety.
It is a reminder of how we can have different responses to identical circumstances by our response.
