Key 5 shows a yellow stone building with a red domed roof and multi-colored stained glass windows. The yellow stone of the building represents a rigid mind set; the red dome is a symbol of power and prestige. The colored glass in the windows stands in contrast to the cold structure of the stone symbolizing that the potential for enlightenment is always present even in the most rigid circumstances. This symbolism is repeated above in the blue sky of spirituality breaking through the gray clouds of doubt and fear. The green grass represents growth and the white sidewalk, purity. They are separated from the structure by the dark stone foundation. The entrance is even further removed. The building is set above the road to give the impression of authority. The Key’s number, 5 symbolizes humanity’s flexibility and freedom to change.
