The Spiritual Themes in the Art of James C. Christensen


One Light

Here, the Everyman is sitting on a checkerboard, which symbolizes the game board of life and opposition in all things. The skull in his cap is evidence that he is aware of his mortality. Despite his vulnerability and frail mortality, he lets his light shine. Christensen wrote, "You may be only one little lamp with a light, but if there are enough of us letting our lights shine, we'll light up the universe."
