This piece combines several types of work that I have been doing over the last few years. One thing I have been thinking about for several years is how to combine the metaphors I use in a single piece that deals with the totality of being human. That is probably something I will never achieve. But, the Parable series does combine imagery from my Ecclesia series, Knowledge series, Collaborating with Providence Series, and Things Eternal series. As such, it more fully looks at what it means to be human. When I was explaining this piece to a student, he remarked that it was like a visual parable and thus the series was named.
