Lamed Vav - Original Lamed Vav - Original

Lamed Vav


©2010 Monica Erosa
Oil on sculptured canvas, 916x916x40mm

The Lamed Vav are two letters in the Hebrew alphabet. Numerically, they represent 36, which is twice  the number 18,
which represents "Chai"  the number of Life.... 
So Lamed-Vav is actually a double life. The Lamed (which is the crooked character on the right) indicates the outer-life
of a Lamed-Vav, bent by the sorrows and trials of life, scarredand mis-shapen. The Vav represents the inner life,
straight, upright, righteous, beautiful. It is the extraordinary that is hidden within the ordinary.

Wake up and hold the light together we illuminate our beautiful planet!
