Spirituality is present in the installation photograph by Robert Eustace's mixed-media event, 

The Celestial Rose : Circles of Sanctity (1995) [Image - Figure 17 in the catalogue] Colored by candlelight, the object glows golden on this undulating arch tablet that holds a metallic, thornless rose - a symbol of Mary. (19) At it's center surrounded by circular, musical notations, apsidal architectural plans, and the Jewish tree of life, all are unified by glowing candlelight, God's light.


(19) In the Greco - Roman Tradition the rose was associated with Venus p. 11
