Using 650 of the most common names in each country of the world, Keller explores Isaiah’s messianic saying, "Behold I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands" (Isaiah 49:16). The work reminds the viewer of the personal nature of the Savior’s Atonement. Christ’s sacrifice, though infinite and eternal in its scope, is also for "even the most common of us all."

"When we eventually look at the marks on His palms, we will each see our name there."
