The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world and all who live in it.

Psalm 24:1

This mosaic is part of a triptych of images based on Psalm 22 ("Cross"), Psalm 23 ("Hills") and Psalm 24.  "Hands" was the first mosaic piece that I created.  It was created for submission for a module of my undergraduate degree in Applied Theology.  My tutor, Derek Foster, asked the students to either write a 2000 word exegesis of a Psalm, or to write 1000 words and create a piece of art to accompany it as 'a picture tells a thousand words'.

The piece illustrates God presenting the world as His perfect work with an element of tenderness as the hands cradle His creation.  The hands extend over the frame to demonstrate the blurring of the boundary between the divine and the human orders.
