These beautiful 12″ x 12″ paper on paper hand cut collages by Rebecca Odessa are based on a book, which is a translation and commentary of a 16th century kabbalistic text. Dr Henry Abramson’s Kabbalah of Forgiveness considers the work of Rabbi Moshe Cordovero, called Tomer Devorah (trans: Date Palm of Devorah). The Tomer Devorah is essentially a Kabbalistic how-to-manual; specifically, how to imitate God.

I’ve included 10 of Rebecca’s pictures here but to see the other 3 in the series, and to read the meanings behind them, visit The Wisdom Daily. It’s a great blog post written by Rebecca and well worth taking a few minutes to read, whatever your religious beliefs might be.
