The fractal trees in this poster represent the Ten Sefirot of the kabbalistic Tree of Life. Each tree has three branches that then branch and into three smaller branches - a total of nine, and with the trunk of the tree, ten. Fractals are forms that are self-similar on different scales. How many trees are here? There are eighteen complete trees in the three larger wheels. Eighteen is the gematria (number value) of the Hebrew word for Life Chai חי.
Fractals are forms that are self-similar on different scales - like the nine-branched trees in this picture. Notice how the branches of each fractal tree are similar to the shape of the Hebrew letter ש Shin. The letter Shin, which is comprised of three vertical lines, represents Fire, which moves upward, or ‘transcendence’.
In this picture, one large brown circle contains six smaller circles that represent the Six Days of Creation according to Genesis. The brown circle in its center represents the Seventh Day of Creation - Shabbat. Notice that this picture is fractal or holographic. If you zoom out you can see that this large brown circle itself is the center of an even larger cycle in which only a small part of its upper yellow circle and a small part of its lower purple circle can be seen. And if you zoom in you can see smaller cycles of seven as well. Zoom out and appreci
