We are all alike because we all need forgiveness. Luke 7 tells the story of a sinner who approaches the Savior, wets His feet with her tears, and dries them with her hair. Christ forgives her. Bolt’s figure spirals around, showing the complete turn made possible through her repentance. The figure is unformed at the base and becomes more refined in the course of the rotation, showing the development available through Christ’s mercy and forgiveness.

"The fact that everyone needs forgiveness makes us all equal before God."
