Judge Comments

It was arresting to see a Bible covered in a blue marbled effect. That choice signifies the metaphor of water, which is seen throughout the Scriptures – deep, untamable, moving, cleansing, etc. The addition of the subtle gold ripple feels as if it’s alluding to the divine, or perhaps it’s even a visual for the Holy Spirit. It’s as if that gold ripple is undulating behind the scenes throughout the story of time. – ML
