DescriptionAlthough a sea of mottled, earthly bound hues crash all around it, the central cry, 'Be Still, My Soul,' remains safely enveloped in a calm, anchored core. The twists and turns of the typography are inspired by the melody of Jean Sibelius' 'Finlandia,' which, despite its complicated melody and occasional dissonance, weaves this hymn's words into a comforting quilt of a reminder, 'through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.'
