“Away” is based on the scripture: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.”(Luke 21:33)
“Heaven” is the garment she is wearing. It shows a scene of a galaxy. “Earth” is in the panel crossing her head, as earthly things are constantly on our minds. The red strip across her forehead represents the crown of thorns and that Christ lives in us and believers are the “Body of Christ.” The cartoon “Astro Boy” is a representation of those who are content with the surface appeal of spirituality without having the desire for deeper things.
