The Vineyard: Metaphor for Life
2017
Acrylic on Canvas
29" x 72"
There is a suggestion that the fruit of the Tree of Wisdom was like bunches of grapes on a vine. Noah planted a vine after the Flood. Over 40 expressions connected with viticulture are mentioned in the Bible and Talmudic literature. The vine is a symbol of the Tree of Life and has been used to represent Jerusalem and the Torah. The Tree of Life played an important role in depicting the written law, the Torah, and the Ten Commandments.
