MAC and RETNA teamed up for a project earlier this year to give birth to this piece. MAC worked on the portrait of the girl based off of a photo, while RETNA tackled the halo and text designs for the background.
The title for the piece comes from the text in the halo, which is an old Latin phrase:
“Collige, virgo, rosas dum flos novas et nova pubes et memor esto aevumsic properare tuum.”
“Pick, girl, the flowers while they are still fresh and the youth is new, remembering that the time goes by.”
