The entire painting is bordered in a lovely syrup brown rectangular frame that is imprinted with gorgeous golden motifs, highlighted with the Maya blue hued sky, filled with soaring birds. A lush green acacia tree hangs down over its shamrock painted trunk, contoured by a less voluminous teal tinged tree that illuminates like an aureole, circling around the missionary's head. Grey river water seeps over the bright green grass as the growing weeds protect the two golden tinted books, one of them splits open as the wind blow while his charcoal black cloche hat rests on the grassy ground. The artist elegantly captures lovely silhouettes in the background who are accompanied by an equally excellent illustration of crème white buildings that extend to give out a look of wide domes.
This painting shows the selflessness in the life of a missionary who gives up all his worldly desires in order to earn closeness to God and to help others follow this path too. It is the perfect wall hanging, being the best reminder of our sole and primitive purpose on the face of the Earth.
