In this artwork, the artist portrays the deep spiritual feeling of a woman lighting her Shabbat candles. The faces and hands blend into the swirling deep blue background, suggesting the connection between the physical woman and the spiritual realm. The only light in the painting comes from the glow of the candles, and the gold-painted words of the prayer. The textured and layered paint, with glimpses of bright light, represent the many layers of reality, and a woman’s ability to transcend the physical by creating a closeness to Hashem during the mitzvah of lighting candles.
