Hahnemühle German Etching Fine Art Print

Signed and Numbered by the Artist


I have always regularly imagined the visual of Jacob and his dreaming encounter of the Ladder. Classically, this scene is interpreted as the departure and elevation of the angels that accompanied Jacob in Israel and the descent of the angels that would accompany him in his journeys. Kabbalistically, the ladder (Sulam) is the connection between Gd and the ethereal with our physical world. I have always visualised the land as being the physical, world (a place where we get so easily caught up in the material). During prayer I feel as if I am in water – an environment where one feels both a sense weightlessness and a “tide” that takes you towards a direction if you allow it. Out of the waters of prayer, away from the shore, I imagine the first rungs of the ladder. Only when one ascends the ladder of creation does one perceive true reality, allowing a cleaer and more focused perspective upon re-entry into earthly spheres.
