This artwork is designed to be symbolic of the process that humanity is undergoing at present to unwind its religious conditioning and superstitious thinking and develop its scientific and objective intelligence. The church here is depicted as melting under the heat of the sun, as temperatures on the planet continue to climb as a result of human-created climate change. Through this process, religious assumptions will be more throughly investigated by a new humanity that will understand the value of impartial and tested wisdom. In another way, the melting church can also be seen as humanity casting aside the values of the religions such as temperance and universal love for all things in favour of the materialistic values born from economic systems such as capitalism which are driven by greed and the amassing of material fortunes.
