Shantih is a refuge. She is composed of multiple contrasting and duelling identities. She is modest and elaborate, finely crafted and at times repetitive. She is big, loud and bright while also somber, eerily mysterious and pensive. Her two arms wrap around and hold onto the land sloping away from her towards the infinite sea.
