From a series illustrating all the 150 psalms. Psalms 104:1. Artist's comment: "The 104th Psalm is a continuation of the 103rd Psalm challenging us to paint a soul on a two-dimensional canvas, an almost impossible task. Yet after study and contemplation, we found that each soul must have its own subjective characteristics that distinguish it from other souls. These particularities can be expressed by shape, color, etc. The soul is depicted as being on fire. This fire, expressing the soul in Psalm 104, differs in color and form from that in Psalm 103. Psalm 104 depicts the fire of mercy and contemplation reaching for the Creator and is surrounded by the white color of loving kindness."
