“Praise ye the Lord. Praise ye the Lord from the heavens: praise him in the heights.” — Psalm 148:1
This artwork’s name tells the basics of its story: that it is scripture art created from strokes that are the original Torah font letters from the Bible’s Psalm 148.
This image combines the two powerful symbols of this season: the six pointed star of David (the red leaves) and the four pointed cross (the green leaves).
It fascinates me that this holiday season of lights for the Biblically based religions often combines their symbols and images. For instance, a menorah — and the basic symbol of Hanukkah is an eight candle menorah– is a tree. A menorah is always a symbol of a tree, and that comes from the bible. What is one of the main images or symbols for Christmas? A tree with lights on it!
Poinsettias have become popular flowers in the west as the bloom in December during the holiday season.
Yet, there is more to the image depicted here, as it combines the two powerful symbols of this season: the six pointed star of David (the red leaves) and the four pointed cross (the green leaves. poinsettias have become a popular decoration during the winter holiday season.
Poinsettias are native to Mexico. According to legend in the 16th century a young, poor Mexican girl was inspired by an angel to gather weeds from the roadside as a present for Jesus’ birthday, and to place these before the church alter. When red flowers blossomed the flower became associated with Christmas. By the 17th century Mexican Franciscan friars were including poinsettias in there Christmas celebrations, claiming that the leaf pattern symbolized the Star of Bethlehem, while the red color symbolizes the blood of Christ. Plus, of course the colors that symbolize Christmas are green and red, which are the colors of Italy where the Vatican is located.
