One particular work invoked the sacred, picturing Obama's great head--illuminated by sunbursts--emerging from the clouds over a bare-breasted maiden who is robed in an American flag and emerging from a volcano. Note that in the lower-right-hand corner an assemblage of people are literally kneeling before Obama.

As observed by Jonathan V. Last in a visit to the "Manifest Hope" gallery, which brings together many of the classic works of Obama along with new additions.
