The artwork is one of the two quilts on the theme of justice donated to the Constitutional Court. The quilt is multi-layered with ripples, and depicts the biblical healing potential of the pool of Bethesda. Central to the scene is Nelson Mandela embracing the nation, the first ripple illustrates human rights, the second the first democratic election, and the third Freedom.
