The title is taken from a beautiful artbook about Tiepolo Pink by Roberto Calasso. His poetry in describing the works by the Italian artist are a form of art in itself. This particular phrase imparts something of the honour of being an artist in a faith setting; propagating glory and manifesting divine creativity. The form of the work is a homage to Zao Wou Ki, in my opinion, a great propagator of glory.
