About This Work

As if secretly looking in from the outside, we see the magic of St. Peter's Basilica in the centre of Rome. But the unusual viewpoint implies a distance, in a real as well as a metaphorical sense: a distance born perhaps in awe of the splendour and of the holy religion; or perhaps a distance born in a wish to separate from the authority of that religion and the mistakes of the past. As always in art, the viewer decides, and is left with a sense of awe, or one of regret: the choice is up to him or her.
