In the artist's own words: “The colonnade of St. Peter's Basilica is transformed throughout the day. It is a place where depending on the time of day and position of the sun there is great variation in its color and mood. It seems to serve mainly as a transition space from the city to the protection of the Basilica, while this image displays the space between and captures it during a warm and welcoming mood.”
