A Fine Commencement is one of Reinike's Arch Series paintings. Many symbols appear in this piece. Knowledge and Faith are the two central themes of the piece.
Some symbols to explore are the palm as a symbol of victory, the floor as a gameboard and the red of inner life. Contemplate the line of figures and the tablets. There are many stories a viewer can weave.
