Victorious (Al-‘Aziz)

Etched and Fired Glass

Two interlaced tetrahedrons, the Platonic solid symbolizing fire, bear the colors of earth and water—symbolizing God’s power to transform the most destructive of forces for our ultimate good.  Divine might is both protective and enabling:  He can overpower the very fires of hell, keeping them damped and still; He can also empower us to use our talents and blessings for the greatest good.  Triumphing over the forces of evil and temptation, God in turn clears the way for us to exercise the gifts with which He has endowed us to the fullest, strengthening us so we might reach our full potential.
