Eliot Smith describes the work;

 

The work explores three themes of love, death and resurrection. When we look at mirrors for personal grooming we sometimes gaze too long, so that we become lost in our own self-image, sparking us to revisit passed memories. We all encounter love in our lives, and love is a variety of different feelings, states and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection. Love may be understood as a function for humans to discover our identities and sometimes love takes us into the unexpected. Death is a part of our daily lives, for example: when we sin or do wrong a part of us dies and later we are resurrected into the new.
