The lines of the Gospel of St Matthew, chapter 6, verses 9- 13, are known among the Christian churches as the Lord's Prayer, and as such appear in many forms and translations.

The prayer has been finely engraved onto a hand finished sterling silver bracelet with unusual properties. The geometric form is known as a Mobius strip, after the German mathematician August Ferdinand Mobius (1790-1868). It represents the seeming paradox of a plane without end, or one of infinite length. As such it became accepted as the symbol for infinity and appropriate and symbolic form for the Lord's Prayer.

Text reads:

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
Amen
