Commission | Diocese of Helena

The Spirit is conveyed through the abstract element of light and dark. Understated yellow paint intensifies the divine presence of Light. Hidden in the deep blues and purples is thick paint in the form of a serpent, a metaphor for evil. Sand texture invites the viewer to follow the sacred path, even though it is lined with temptations.
