The artist is concerned to capture the moment of Pentecost, with the dove resting between the women's head. G M Hopkins was a Jesuit Priest and a talented writer and poet. It is clear that Jones idenitified with the priest in a very personal way and this work possesses and encapsulates Hopkins beliefs and philosophy.
