Text 'The Risen Light of Christ', 'I have set before you life and death, threfore choose life'.

An arresting design. The risen Christ in glory, over a darkened world, contrasted in power with that of an atomic explosion (the mushroom cloud). Designed and made at a time of fear and uncertainty in international relations, it is a positive statement of the triumph of faith, hope and life.
