As an entire piece, the whole concept can be left up to interpretation. For Nikko, it is about nostalgia, mischief, and close bonds. There is a portrayal of Santo Nino ("baby Jesus") a common statue found in Filipino Catholic households. Nikko's mom still has one displayed atop her own cabinet to this day! Growing up, his mom would collect porcelain decorated plates and would display them throughout the house. Oftentimes as kids, Nikko & his brother would get too rowdy playing hockey inside the house and inevitably would knock something fragile over and break it, all under the gaze of Santo Nino.
To Nikko, this can be seen as a portrayal of "Catholic guilt", where Christ is watching over two characters that are breaking things. Or, it can be portrayed as forgiveness, where Christ is watching over these two characters despite the wreckage that they cause. 

Nikko is a Filipino American illustrator residing in Los Angeles, CA.
