The journey flows gracefully across the front of the fireplace, down towards the right side then onto the hearth.

In the middle of the hearth, circular designs call to mind family warmth and closeness.

Finally the right side panel describes the golden age of life.

This phase is ridden with the paths and peaking shapes of life. This phase represents the main character at the Golden Years.
