Boardman portrays haloed Biblical figures, but which figure is which as identified by the labels in the title (publican, sinner, pharisee, and saint) is unclear. Despite halos’ traditional use to represent sanctity and divinity, Boardman believes all should have halos. However, throughout mortality, humanity’s halos get tarnished and bent. "To me," Boardman comments, "the gospel is the repairing of halos and the shot at second chances."

"I think we need to take a closer look to find the halos on those we would least expect."
