Go is about energy from within. At first sight it looks like we see two lovers on a cloud, but when one looks more carefully you can see that they're sat on a dragon. Both are true. The lovers depict ourselves, me and my love from within. The dragon also lives within us, it clears obstacles from the road. It stands for the struggle that generates energy and with that generates maneuverability and inner space. With that, the road is free for our love. The vaulting over the edge takes us to the other side. Here, the dragon's wings symbolize the release of pure energy. GO!

The design of the medal was inspired by turned earth. This stands for energy and change. I took the theme of the dragon from my travels to the East, where this mythical creature symbolizes power.

The medal will be sent by registered post.
