This design was inspired by the movie poster from the movie western 'Unforgiven' starring Clint Eastwood. In the original poster he was holding a revolver behind his back wearing a long dark overcoat set against a dark black background. The movies theme takes on the often violent nature of man.
I took that image and wondered what it might look like from the opposite perspective. Thus the man is portrayed against a light yellowish background in a white coat bordered in red holding a cross rather than a pistol to symbolize the power of faith, love and forgiveness
