The evening sky is stained with cobalt ink and shows Venus ascendant over Stac an Armin. Wheeling pinpricks of white birds are scarcely visible over Stac Lee, one of the tallest sea stacs in the British Isles, which here is transfigured courtesy of its remarkable similarity of topography into the garden tomb at Gethsemene.

The Nephesh window can be clearly seen mid right of the stac at a height of approximately 80m, here the soul takes flight from the tomb, the symbolism of which is described in more detail in my poem of the same name.
