Description

This nearly square typographical composition has a series of words stacked one on top of the other filling the entire space. At the top, taking up approximately 1/4 of the upper portion of the composition is the word "PEACE" in capital letters in the color lime-green. Just below this word is the phrase "work power." The word "work" moves vertically up the left margin of the composition and the "k" is positioned under the "P" of "PEACE." The word "power" is under the letters "EACE" with the "er" running beyond the end of the world "PEACE." The color of "work power" is predominately a deep navy blue with the half of the "e" and all of the "r" in red. Below this word is the word "COR" in the same lime-green color as "PEACE" though it is positioned upside down and backwards. "COR" fills the middle third of the composition. Below "COR" is a Hebrew word in pale-blue and lime-green.
inscribed: PEACE / workpower / COR / שָׁלוֹם‎ [SHALOM]
