Swan Couple -- Song of Songs by Judy Rey Wasserman
This romantic and loving Swan Couple -- Song of Songs is created by Judy Rey Wasserman with strokes that are each an original letter from the Bible's Song of Songs (chapters 1-8), the Bible's love song.
Close up of Swan Couple - Song of Songs
The book of the Song of Songs is also known as the Song of Solomon as it is attributed to him. All of the scripture in the Hebrew Testament were and are chanted (sung) in synagogues and Jewish temples. The word "psalm" means song. Thus the name of this book of the Bible.
"Let him kiss me with the kisses of his mouth: for thy love is better than wine." -- Song of Songs 1:2
Swans mate for life. They live in the inlets, ponds and lakes near the artist's home and can usually seen in pairs, or with their young swimming close behind them. Watching the swans it is evident that they are friends. They work tgether and seem to wordlessly communicate as they care for their signets.
"Love is a friendship set to music" ~ Joseph Campbell
In the image, the swans, like many lovers, ome together they create something new: an specialneness of two. This is visually shown by the heart that is created within the pairs beaks and necks, visible in the close up image.
A heart is an easily recognized symbol for love and caring, but also it symbolizes human life itself.
There are more hearts radiating from the swan lvers that are hidden in the ripples of the water and in the air around them. How many hidden hearts can you find?
Although lacking in obvious religious content, Song of Songs is often interpreted as a parable of the relationship between God and Israel. For Christians the symbolic relationship is between God (often in the Person of Christ) and Christians or the Church.
"Gather the people, sanctify the congregation, assemble the elders, gather the children, and those that suck the breasts: let the bridegroom go forth of his chamber, and the bride out of her closet."-- Joel 2:16
