The article features the 3M Altar which is embellished with found objects. The altar was created in honor of Meg Higgins on the celebration of her 50th birthday. The figures in the altar include a photo of Meg at the center, Mary the mother of Jesus and Marge Simpson. The crystals, jewels and gems on the altar represent spiritual renewal while the flowers symbolize Spring or the renewal and brevity of life. The certainty of death is represented by the skeleton while heaven and sublimation is represented by the pearls. The moon symbolizes rhythm of life and cycles of women while love and perfection is represented by the presence of a rose.
