" The Perfect Man is as a polished mirror reflecting the Sun of Truth, manifesting the attributes of God. The Lord Christ said, `He that hath seen Me hath seen the Father' God manifested in man. The sun does not leave his place in the heavens and descend into the mirror, for the actions of ascent and descent, coming and going, do not belong to the Infinite, they are the methods of finite beings. In the Manifestation of God, the perfectly polished mirror, appear the qualities of the Divine in a form that man is capable of comprehending."

" He, for Whose sake the world was called into being, hath been imprisoned in the most desolate of cities Akka, by reason of that which the hands of the wayward have wrought. From the horizon of His prison city He summoneth mankind unto the Dayspring of God, the Exalted, the Great." 

The Prison City of Akka in Palestine, is the place where Bahá'u'lláh and his family were banished in 1868. This print depicts the rays of hope from, that illuminate the world through his writings and messages, that emanated from his prison cell as a mirror reflecting the Sun.
