Mamaroneck, NY

God created… all from the same organic dust…[1] All souls are alike... None is superior or inferior.[2] [T]he seeds of the kingdom are planted in both female and male… [I]n the kingdom there is no difference…[3] All [are] sisters and brothers… reaching out to a common… destiny…[4]

And He gave you… the diversity of your tongues and colors. What should it matter that one bowl is dark and the other pale, if each is of good design and serves its purpose well...[5]

Heaven covers all without partiality; earth sustains and embraces without partiality; the sun and the moon shine upon all without partiality.[6]

Note: human was created from garbage and litter consisting primarily of discarded plastic from an air conditioner, broken yellow plastic pieces, red and white plastic bolts, a discarded piece of wood, copper piece, broken light bulb and piece of a discarded cardboard box. The colors and shades of black, brown, red, white, and yellow represent the races that comprise the diverse fabric of humanity. Each color is indispensable and integral without which there would be an unbridgeable loss of beauty. The pixellation represents the fragility of life and the smile face represents joy when all peoples of every ethnic background, gender and religion of the one human race live in peace and harmony.

Isn't the agreement of the quoted statements
of the religions mentioned by you above amazing?
This deeply touching, abstract work of art to me is like a revelation,
or like a vision of what will be one day.
You have admirable talents, William.
Have a great week, take care, and stay well!
