Description

Bronze door of the basilica of Steinfeld showing a relief of the hidden God holding the tapistry of the Creation: Life (the upsprouting tendrils) and Love (Adam and Eve) are the great gifts of the Creator. The empty field in the center symbolizes the destruction of the Creation by mankind: a dying or dead man impaled on the tops of a desolate forest, a reference to the Saviour. Above this new sprouts are developing.
