A large central figure represents God towers seen in the radiating rays of light and clouds that surround him.. On the forehead of his blocky, totemic head is a third eye. His left arm crosses over his middle and holds fire. His right hand extends down to the lower right corner as reaching down. The words &quot;Vater Unser&quot; are at the very top; &quot;Der Du Bist&quot; across God&#39;s waistline; &quot;im Himmel&quot; along the bottom.
