ETZ HAYIM: It Is A Tree Of Life...

The one-of-a-kind "Tree of Life" has an abiding and fascinating place in my iconography as well as for the Jewish people and the Shakers as well as many other traditions and religions. It has a strong presence in the ancient teaching, both as a symbol and as a source of wisdom and teaching. We are asked to connect to the divine dimension thought this tree, whose roots go above and below, When the turmoil of human existence occurs, we are languishing in the "Treee of Knowledge reality. When we connect to the Tree of Life (Etz Hayyim) it is to the realm of immortality and peace. 26"w x 30"H x 3"D Materials: weaving of silk, wool and metallic fibers;paper scrool with Hebrew calligraphy, brass leaves, glass leaves, gold birds, Hansech (Hand of God); green jade stone; silver; on maple burl in shadow box.
