A multiplicity of hands reach up toward the Savior, His hands marked by the wounds received at Golgotha. Isaiah spoke messianically when he stated, "I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands" (Isaiah 49:16), explaining, Borgholthaus notes, "the intimate knowledge Christ has of our pain and suffering, our sins and mistakes." God’s children are all alike in their need for redemption.

"This piece seeks to explore the theme of salvation for all people based on Christ’s perfect love, and invokes a sense of equality in our universal need for a Redeemer of our souls."
