Hespérion is an abstract work that explores the relationships between different communities of differing cultures. It explores the idea that people of different backgrounds, cultures and faiths can unify to create something utterly beautiful such as true love, progress and/or discovery, transcending barriers of dissenting ideas of life, death and spirituality. While many people shun and attempt to draw others away from cultural diffusion and a coming together of faiths, underneath these differences and backgrounds is the fact that our humanity and the way we treat one another ultimately transcends all religions, faiths and beliefs, because the beauty and progress achieved in this way trumps our eternal fighting over what is the truth about life, and what is not.
