A woman in a green dress stands with her feet inside funerary wreath. In her hand she holds a silver ring suspended by a strand of finest silver. Young children, "Ghosts", surround her among the three alters of time: past, present, future. In each panel of the triptych there exists trinkets and mementos that relate to the time frame that each represents. In the "Past" two ghosts arrange flowers underneath a freshly stretched hide adorned with a framed sonogram, three jeweled crosses, a valorous heart medal, and a positive pregnancy test. These are the mementos and records of our attempts to conceive a child. One ghost of the "Present" reads a collection of bones while the other ghost seems mesmerized by the silver ring the woman holds. This ghost also holds the key to the "Future" in its hand. In the "Future" all that remains of the eggs of our past are some old feathers ornamentally arranged inside of a vase. The ghost hides in front of the stall of "Dolly," the first cloned sheep, while an ominous shadowy figure lurks behind the stained glass of the temple. Good luck charms hang, or are left as offerings to the gods.
