An Ark is a cabinet that holds the Torah scrolls. I was invited by Kol Tzedek Synagogue in West Philadelphia to create artwork for the side panels of the ark.
The images depict an Etz Chaim - Tree of Life - on a pedestal. The tree and pedestal are based on source imagery from Ancient Near Eastern Art.
My son Naftali ( age 5) was my collaborator - he drew the lines for the waves on the bottom section of each panel.
