As if viewed through telescopic lenses, this piece mimics the surface of the moon lying in serene beauty.  Silence, from this distance, is all that is imaginable in the rises and falls of its grey scale surface.  

The elevations and depressions of its craters defined by lightened and darkened shades of grey, give sharp focus to this subtle piece.  

So far, yet so close to home, the hidden mysteries that cross its terrain draw the viewer in with its gravitational pull.  They are caught by the force, mesmerised by the thoughts of what secrets it holds in the history of its orbit.
