(Hebrews 12:3) Again, my model Michael, a dedicated Christian. The composition is triangular, symbolizing stability and aspiration. The folds of the robe (made out of “monk’s cloth”) are meant to suggest strength. The inspiration cam by putting together strength and joy from Jeremiah, “The joy of the Lord is your strength.” The second inspirational passage is from Hebrews. It suggests we keep an eye on Jesus, who for the joy set before Him, was able to endure his trials. The cross of light symbolizes the transformation for us made possible by His sacrifice. While we are yet on earth, some of us are called upon to endure harsh persecution and painful trials, and this image can hopefully remind us to keep on eyes on Jesus during those times.
