  Notes: From a series illustrating all the 150 psalms. Psalms 57:11f. Artist's comment: "This psalm contains verses that remind us of Creation that is the subject of this painting. At the top, we see fire, a metaphor for the Almighty. Only one man, Moses, saw "something" of the Almighty at the burning bush. At the bottom, we can see letters with which He created the world. The upper and lower segments of the painting are blue, the color of mercy. The middle is colored white representing loving kindness and the two sides are colored purple to represent wisdom. Thus, the Almighty created the world in mercy, loving kindness and wisdom."
