"For Shekinah's splendor crossed the world from side to side with a brighter glow than the solar globe."
I used the word "Shekinah" as a reference, materialized in the work as a woman's face.
The word shekinah has several meanings, I adopted the
meaning found in Judaism, which is closer to the concept that I try to convey with the work.
Assigning the "Divine Revelation" facet to men, the "Divine Presence", being also considered its "feminine" and "maternal" face. The word "shekinah" does not appear in the Jewish Bible or the New Testament, being a word derived from the Hebrew root ש-כ-נ (sh-kn), which means "to dwell", "to make a home". Reference to the power that women have to generate life and the creative power that inhabits each artist.
The biggest illusion is to think that we are separate from this "Sacred Feminine" within us.
