July 4, 2013

The illustration above is a detail study from the drawing for the blessing of hearing and music.

The nightingales are perched beneath a pomegranate tree upon the Hebrew word z’mir which means ‘nightingale’ but is also a general term for songbird. The word is formed with the letters of an original Hebrew alphabet/alephbet that I designed especially for this book. It is called ‘Rimmon’ or Pomegranate. Tomorrow, I will show you the rest of the letters!
