I realized this work to depict the joy and tranquillity of an elderly couple. A couple united in love in the spring of their lives, a couple who surmounted joys and sorrows together. Now hand in hand, serenely they walk together in their autumn years towards the church that first celebrated their love. A manifestation of the desire of all loving couples.
