Artist Joshua Sterlin Jackson constructed this work to draw out a sense of what is felt when meditating as described in Psalm 1:2:

but whose delight is in the law of the Lord,
    and who meditates on his law day and night.

From the Artist:

In this piece I used cool tones and free-flowing colors that move in abstract directions to produce a feel of peace and meditation. Praying hands over the Bible symbolize one’s meditation on Scripture.
