Malchut

Ten Sefirot of Nothingness

Their vision is like the appearance of lightning
and their limit has no end.

and before His throne they bow.
(Sefer Yetzirah)

Thirteen Sefirot

There are several different forms of the Tree of Life diagram that is used in the Kabbalah to represent the Sefirot.  I use several of these forms in the various picture that I make.  In the Lurianic tradition, Daat is not included as one of the Ten Sefirot because Daat is the ‘outside’ of Keter and the ‘inside’ of Tiferet.  In these diagrams Malchut is fallen, as I explained in my picture ‘Ten Sefirot of Nothingness’. 
 

Tree of Life

Life is a dynamic process of balancing between extremes - between hot and cold, between activity and rest, between expanding outward and contracting inward. When it's cold, we seek Fire to warm ourselves up.  When it's hot, we look for Water to cool ourselves down.

The lower half of this picture shows the root system of a Tree, resting in the cool, wet Earth.

The Seed of Creation

The white in this picture represents Ein Sof - the Infinite and Eternal Light of the God.  The dark sphere represents the seed of Creation, the place formed by the Tzimtzum (the contraction of the Ein Sof) that contains all Worlds.  The Tzimtzum is an act of Gevurah (Strength), a withdrawing of the Infinite Light in order to create a finite realm.  It is thus associated with the Five Gevurot - the five Hebrew letters that change their form when they appear at the end of a word - Mem ם, Nun ן, Tzadi ץ, Peh ף and K
