Visions of the Holy Temple

From a series of paintings
inspired by ideas and meditations
on the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

The Haichal (Sancturary) - Inner and Outer Space

inner/outer space

 
The tallest building in the Temple,
the Holy of Holies or the Inner Sanctuary -
suggested by the translucent schematic lines -
correlates to the head or mind and engenders
the mystical experience of being
within the dimensions
of time and space
and beyond them simultaneously.

The Altar - Sublimation of the Animal Energies

altar


The Altar in the Temple
(suggested by the black schematic lines

of a "overhead" view)
symbolizes the service of the heart
or prayer
whose fires have the power of kindling
the sacrifice of our "animal" soul
and nature,
sublimating its vast energies
to help us reach spiritual heights
.
