The embroidery is made up of three panels. The centre shows a face emerging from the shadows. A person is beginning to see the light at the end of a tunnel. The two side panels which can close over the central one have the words "faith" and "hope" embroidered in gold and under the central image is the word "charity". Superimposed over it is the same word expressed in Braille to suggest the getting of greater understanding.

The work involves various techniques including appliqué, stitchery, goldwork and feltmaking is mounted onto green silk organza. The design was realised by the Glasgow Embroiderers' Guild in 1998.
