A triptych exploring Life - the existing moment and the next moment and so on...
Placed in a sacred setting, as here in a chapel - the work takes on the deep symbolism of those who look with deep religious devotion. The gift of life to Christians by their Lord can be experienced within the light of the mosaic.
