Korean traditional folk dancers, shamans, the sun, the moon, and a traditional wedding are all surrounding the central stone-like figure, which is a depiction of the artist herself in struggle. The top mandala is drawn from Korean Buddhist temple architecture overlooking the chaos below, representing balance and peace. Coexistence is about the artist's struggle for a happy marriage, healing from wounds, and living with han - the Korean cultural inherent trait of a sense of unresolved conflict.
