Resurrection is about the battle within. It's about the battle between light and dark, with what's going on in the world and inside of us as human beings. The light signifies passion, hope and purity in life, represented by the crown of "thorns" lighting the world with hope. The dark signifies fear, desperation and a broken humanity, represented by the "claws".Resurrection occurs when the claws and the thorns are joined and we resurrect back into existence portraying the power of the human soul.
