Y’hi Ohr ! Let There Be Light !

Y'hi Ohr2

The background depicts the primordial soup of creation, Biblical or Big Bang  —  You choose.

Having recently sold my Iconic Y’hi Ohr Piece,

it was time to update the concept with a modern font.

Y’Hi Ohr – Va’Y’Hi Ohr

Sometimes I talk to the glass – and sometimes the glass talks to me. This glass suggested A Primordial Soup, a theory which suggests that Life began in a warm ocean from a combination of chemicals. But I saw something preceding even the beginning of Life.

From Genesis Chapter One: “When God began to create Heaven and Earth the earth was unformed and void, with darkness over the surface of the deep…

Genesis 1:3-4 … and then there was light …. ….and God saw that the light was good …

Genesis 1: 11-12 . . . . God said, “Let the Earth sprout vegetation.  And the Earth brought forth vegetation bearing plants of every kind.”

And There Was Light – Va Y’hi Ohr

In this piece I continue the theme of creation and God’s design
for the origins of our living planet.  The green glass is a symbol of the abundance of Earth’s bounty.

The giving of the 10 Commandments at Sinai initiated the process of forming Israel’s spiritual identity and is illustrated by the Tablets of the Law.

The two Magan David represent the forging of Israel’s national identity and creativity of the people of Israel.

Then God said: Y’HI OHR — “LET THERE BE LIGHT” and there was Light.

Light symbolizes human-kind’s commitment to clarity, rather than mystery — to openness over secrecy — to study rather than blind faith.
