This artwork embodies the idea that the world we see as "reality" is not a real image but a false image, and that mystery and beauty lie in the boundary between the two. Plato, the philosopher of the past, said that human beings are prisoners locked in a cave, and that the sunlight shining into the cave reflects the shadows of the world of ideas on the walls, which are perceived as reality. But what is important is not the truth, but the hope people have, the joy of living, and even the sadness and foolishness, for God embraces people equally with love.

私達の目に映る「現実」と思われる世界は、実像ではなく虚像であり、その境目にこそ神秘や美が潜むという思想がこの作品に込められています。過去の哲学者プラトンは、人間は洞窟の中に閉じ込められた囚人であり、洞窟に差し込む太陽の光がイデアの世界の影を壁に映し出し、それを現実と錯覚していると述べています。しかし大切なのは真実ではなく、人々が持つ希望であり、生きる喜びであり、そして悲しみや愚かさでさえも、神は愛をもって平等に人々を包み込んでくださっています。
