Ritual objects; Kiddish cups
Acrylic and ink on canvas 24x48in
The ritual objects series is an attempt to convey a fundamental Chassidic idea; that this world is here for us to bring to a higher plane of existence. A mitzvah – an act that connects us to G-D is not limited to the ‘ritual objects’ of the world, but rather everyday objects can be elevated when used of a G-Dly purpose.
Kiddish is the act of blessing Shabbat or Holidays with a cup of wine – any cup can be used to elevate and transcend the day and the wine.
