Benjamin's Flight

Melissa Arbanas's avatar Melissa Arbanas

Benjamin's Flight was created in loving memory of my stillborn son, Benjamin. It is a glass on glass mosaic that was formed by adhering pieces of crushed stained glass to a restored glass pane window. This piece is unique because it can be admired from either side. The front displays a 3D illustration of an angel escorting an infant to Heaven, while the back displays an opposite directional view in 2D. It was designed as a symbol of support to families who have experienced the loss of a child.
