The side panels of the icon elaborate some of the events and symbols of Nano's life. These include:
The artist himself writes, "It is entirely appropriate, and in the best traditions of the early church in Ireland, that Nano Nagle should be honored by icon and by symbol. No people in Europe better understood or expressed the life-giving, truth-revealing power of symbolism than did our forefathers. The Nano icon follows closely the story-telling tradition and invitation to discover the mystery of God."
Framed copies of the icon, created with the kinetic stained glass technique, hang in many of the Presentation Convents.
