Eternity Descending into Time

Franklin Delgado's avatar Franklin Delgado

The construction of love as a starting point is ignited by a miracle, an existential intensity. Its duration embodies its remarkable sublimity in that it is not the ecstasy of those beginnings that sets it apart, but an everlasting construction that lasts. This drawing pays homage to the eternal sublimity of love and its transcendent entanglement in human inner immensity. A cross, the most recognized icon on earth, is tattooed in the center of the image. Two uncouth lines voice the highest sacrifice made to save and to give new life. A timid glimpse of melancholy contrasts with the strong hope and faith of life after death. Love is what brings eternity descending into time. Love never ends. This portrait is the salutation of that faith. Celebrating an everlasting sentiment that spans the transience of life, because only when the spirit of a loved one sleeps are we able to grasp the vast feeling beyond all measure of time. The infinity that was once passed to us with a breath of life is awakened. Love brings us closer to those with whom we once walked; it brings us closer to our Creator, to the one whom with love has gifted life.
