Surrounding his head are golden rays representing the divine revelation.  His beard is full of stars and a galaxy representing the heavenly, spiritual things that were always on his mind.  They are ‘dripping’ with the anointing of the Spirit.  In his ‘body’ there is a sunrise which represents the hope and redemption of a new day, maybe his view from the island.  His body is of the earth but is also a vessel to minister the spiritual things of God.
