Emily’s inspiration: When I saw the small old table with its unique features, I was immediately inspired to transform it and give it new life. I envisioned repainting it and recreating it as an altar table. The image of a dove as the Holy Spirit descending has always struck me as powerful and beautiful. Inspired by the artwork of Ade Bethune, I sketched a simple and modern design of a dove descending, radiating light from the Spirit. I hope that this piece can be useful both practically and inspirationally. The reclamation of the table and stylized yet organic image are reminders to me of our re-creation and the beauty of God’s Spirit within us.
