The Package They Carry by *johnstrieder is an amazing 3D scene featuring wonderful models, textures, lighting and details. It also has an important message to convey. ( Suggested by sandrodcpereira and Featured by joannastar )

Hi, this is a very neat picture, with very good 3d design. I was wondering what the symbol on the pack on the far left is, it is green and has three wavy lines.

Thank you! It's the flag of Hiroshima.

In the end when the world ended, these symbols they carry, do they matter anymore than a letter or a word? By some people yes, why? Because they are the identity of man and the things that come to mind of the young who will carry the on afterwards. How selfish those who wish this upon the next generation are. When will they ever learn...

Could someone try to explain the message? Everyone says they love it, and it's strong, I don't get it...

I get that people have religions, but I don't think that's the message.=/ The general feeling is sad, does this mean religion is bad? Maybe simbols are bad?

Is that swastic for Nazism or for that Indian religion I can't remember?

I don't recognize all of the simbols, also.

Can someone try and analize this?

The kids don't understand the symbols.

they are wearing the symbols of the groups who persecuted them from what i understand. i cant find any logical reason for the black kid to be waring “white power” symbols other than that. not 100% sure who represents what group but the black girl i believe represents native african and the black boy i think represents african american, the white girl with pigtails is suppose to be jewish? the other two i have no idea. hey i took a shot at it, dont see any one else coming forward lol
