Covenant is a reminder of our inescapable two-way partnership with the planet. A covenant is defined as an "agreement or promise usually under seal between two or more parties especially for the performance of some action the deed conveying the land contained” (merriam-webster.com). The natural environment does its best to fulfill its duty to sustain us. However, are we keeping our part of the agreement to love, honour and respect our partner for life?
Humans gather in a partnership ceremony, not with each other, but with the Earth. The seal of the agreement is displayed against the bright sun. The boat is a nod to Noah's Ark and the need for a fresh start in the treatment of the environment.
