Visions of the Holy Temple

From a series of paintings 
inspired by ideas and meditations 
on the Holy Temple in Jerusalem.

 
  THE SANCTUARY - INTERIOR AND OUTER SPACE


inner/outer space

 
The tallest building in the Temple, the Holy of Holies 
or the Inner Sanctuary - suggested by the translucent schematic 
lines - correlates to the head or mind and engenders 
the mystical experience of being within the dimensions
of time and space and beyond them simultaneously.

THE ALTAR - SUBLIMATION OF THE ANIMAL ENERGIES

The Altar in the Temple (suggested by the black schematic lines
of a "overhead" view) symbolizes the service of the heart
or prayer
whose fires have the power of kindling
the sacrifice of our "animal" soul
and nature,
sublimating its vast energies to help us reach spiritual heights
.
