The Great Egret has been said to symbolize new beginnings, peace, grace and partnership. Here, we see the Egret against a blue sky, with the image superimposed over innumerable human faces. The number 8,056,560,887 was the world's population on the day the print was completed.

In 2010 and 2016 the Library of Congress acquired nearly 500 of Sances’ prints that broadly represent his output. His work has been exhibited widely, including the show “Committed to Print” at New York’s Museum of Modern Art. In 2022 he was invited to show his work at La Sorbonne, Université, in Paris. Sances work is featured in “¡Printing the Revolution! The Rise and Impact of Chicano Graphics 1965 to Now” at the Smithsonian American Art Museum. He is one of the few non-Chicanos whose work is featured in the exhibition.
