i'm liking the idea that you can go off on your own, after dealing with the various hassles and fissures of nowadays life, to meditate on things.. items such as this. as for the religious sentiments - they really mean nought more than storyboards to a wider theme. that said, as imparted, imbued with faith or devoid of it - the all inclusive is fine by me. does mathematics play a part in his art? perspective utilized in painterly depictions... is this pre-optic r.e to scale representations of a hearth scene and/or portraiture? the river stops? perhaps it's merely a fjording over the water way? or is it baptismal font?

COS IT'S ART. RELIGION INDUCES ART AND REALLY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH RELIGION - OTHER THAN EXPRESSING THE GO OF THE ARTIST.
