The Sunshine Wall is a metaphor in relation to the different types of paper and their inherent value. This correlation aims at provoking thoughts of monetary worth while assessing their significance and meaning in today’s society. This juxtaposition also metaphorically reinforces ideas of repetition - as in prayer, obstacles - as in life or death, the widening gap between the have and have-nots – as in asking for good fortune, and it is the wall that ultimately symbolizes this separation of one area from another.
