According to Jewish philosophy the world was created
ex nihilo by the Hebrew letters and words
of the Ten Divine Utterances
in the first chapter of Genesis
and in particular the first word Bereishis בראשית
which is the subject of the entire Tikunei Zohar.
There the various permutations of its letters
are examined and explicated and one of them can be read
Barah Shis ברא שית
He created Six (or Foundation)

Each of the 22 Hebrew Scribal Letters is a specific modality
through which the spiritual influx enters reality

Eve and the Serpent


mixed materials on canvas 40″ x 30″ (102 x 76 cm)

The confrontation of Eve and the Serpent is one
of the most mysterious “stories” of the Bible
and is the subject of many deep studies.
The serpent נחש has the same gematria (358)
and is connected to the Messiah משיח,
who will rectify this mundane world,
which is called by the Kabbalah,
the “Skin of the Serpent”, משכא דחויא
releasing all of its holy sparks
and trapped energies.
