With this illustration Ghadah explains how society perceives her: like a white bunny, a stuffed animal, small and sweet like a little angel, but she also has mixed feelings, love, hate, disappointment, joy that she can’t always openly demonstrate. For this reason the bunny eats the heart, symbolizing that sometimes we have to swallow our feelings.
Ghadah appears in this drawing as a worm, hidden in the earth, seeing how the train of life goes by very quickly. She wants to catch that train before it's too late and has a thousand ideas on what she would love to do. But a metal ring, holds her to the ground and does not let her come out onto the surface.

Who hasn’t once suffered because of love? Expressing the feeling we’re sometimes left with when a relationship ends in a hurtful way, is the white rabbit, small and vulnerable, quiet and very afraid. He’s in front of a dartboard with his heart on top of his head, ears down.
Ghadah Al Ajmi admires the effort that mothers make daily and the deep and pure love they feel for their children. As a tribute to all the women, she painted this work based on the real history of the whales. They travel thousands of kilometers to reach the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico to give birth.
