Adam miAdamah (Dust from soil)
oil on canvas, 70×50 cm
“… Because H” had not sent rain on the earth and there was no man to work the ground” (Genesis 2:5)
This picture illustrates that the creation of the first man, Adam, from the dust of the ground, was created with only two colors: blue and sienna earth.
These two colors express the two dimensions in which man was formed: the man is a mix of matter-earth and sky-divinity. The still arid land from which man was created, has been made flexible by the Divine Word.
We see the creation of man that goes out from the dunes of the desert in the fetal position. Its umbilical cord is the channel of communication with the matrix above.
The Queen Esther with the ten sons of Aman

In this big picture, we see the Queen Esther with the ten sons of Aman hanged as puppets to the ten fingers of her seductive hands: ten is a reference to the ten Commandments and the ten sefirot.
The framework gives us access to many esoteric secrets that are hidden in Meghillat Esther.
The jewels are made of pure gold.

What is an artist?
I got the idea from a 10 years girl to which I asked: “What would you paint on the Playmobil-artist canvas?”
Thus was born the chain of self-portrait inside the other, or rather to his representations of the image and likeness, which move in two directions: inwards, until the primitive model (the tetragrammaton human shaped), and outwards, involving the artist and the Author of the same artist… the Divine Artist.
Qav (Ari zal)
oil on canvas, 26×140 cm
“After the withdrawal of G-D – after which that place was free, empty, vacuous and hollow right in the middle of the light of En sof derived a straight line coming down from the light of his circle, and lowered down from above in that hollow … “(Etz Haiym, Haiym Vital)
To understand the contents of this picture that unfortunately, as it always happens, it loses much of its beauty and strength in the photograph, you need a good knowledge of lurian Kabbalah.

In this context we see the Red Sea (Yam suf) divided in two by a Sefer Torah completely unwound: on this Sefer’s paper small letters are the Jews who left the Egypt who write with their own tiny bodies, the text of the Torah until the Shirat Hayam.
This picture contains many esoteric secrets whose reading requires good study basis of the kaballistic concepts.
The three monotheistic religions
oil on canvas, 100×140 cm
This picture is a summary of the theory of Rav Eliahu Munk and the writings of Rav Eliahu Benamozeg, according to which the three monotheistic religions are the three sefirotic pillars: Judaism, mother -religion, is Keter, it comes out from the Holy, Blessed be He, also the median point of equilibrium between the two forces. Christianity is the right pillar, Hessed, the attribute of love (WHITE). Islam is the left pillar, Din, attribute of Justice and the penalty (RED).
The three sefirot are also associated to the three neighborhoods of Jerusalem.
However, the Sufi immam wears in white (even in Islam is mercy) and the bishop wears in black and red (Christianity, in turn, also presents characters of rigor and intransigence).
