A Path Of Struggle Through A Kingdom And Its Crown
variant on wall @ Cisim, Ravenna (Italy)
The subject takes its inspiration from the Sephirot of the Tree of Life, the ten emanations of Kabbalah.
The three letters refer to the attributes which lay on the central vertical line of the Tree of Life.
K as Keter, the crown. It stands on top, invisible, above everything.
T as Tiferet, spirituality, balance, compassion. A lower reflection of Keter, stands at the center and it’s connected to all the other sephirot except one. In christian Kabbalah it is associated with Jesus Christ. (the golden tree passing through the hand at T point resembles Jesus’ stigmata)
M as Malkuth, the kingdom - It stands at the bottom of the tree. It’s the lowest sephirah and the closest to matter & earth. Tiferet is nonetheless its higher reflection.
