Title:Word of Life mural

"What they asked me to do was to suggest in a great processional the idea of a never-ending line of great scholars, thinkers, and teachers - saints that represented the best that man has recorded, and which are found represented in a library. The thought was that the various periods that are suggested in the theme have unfolded in the continuous process of one generation giving to the next. I put Christ at the top with the disciples to suggest that He is the great teacher - that is really the thematic idea." -Sheets.

Sheets first made a painting of the design, and the Cold Spring Granite Company translated the design into a pattern of over 6,000 separate pieces of varieties of stone from around the world.
