Or how?


That. Is begging that question



Clarification: >>>>>>



toward or forward

2ward or 4 ward. ( where 2 ward~is similar to ward off)
4 ward entails to an upper limit ( through 3)

The notation is non sensible to any persons not acquainted with kabbalah or basic numerology.

As art can be grounded on some cubistically fall back from traditional fiorm- this condition is a requirement


The latter condition of begging the question remains unchanged. ( if unchallenged)





"We find that the fields of kabbalah and art in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries are inexorably intertwined, nurturing one another in ways that are both creative and unique. In this issue, we join with a current trend in academia to turn to objects and visual images as primary sources of historical and philosophical truths. This trend began with museum curators and conservators, and has now reached the major universities as a topic of its own. The Bard Graduate Center in New York is a leader in this kind of historical and sociological analysis of visual culture.2 A fall 2020 undergraduate course at the Parsons School of Design in New York is entitled “Objects as History.”3 One university in Cambridge boasts, as a matter of course, that on its campus the study of history allows for “the handling of historical objects.”4 Moreover, the Rijksmuseum and the University of Amsterdam have been developing the field of object history, and in 2018 held an interdisciplinary seminar on this topic led by researchers, curators and conservators, historians, and scientists.5 The earliest foray in this direction was by Neil McGregor, then director of the British Museum, London, in his popular 2010 radio series A History of the World in 100 Objects, which encouraged many to turn to stories as explanatory tools for the study of objects. The present issue “Kabbalah and Art,” seeks to further this trend with the presentation of path-breaking research on ritual objects, plastic arts, and visual images as they relate to kabbalah. This is their story, and they share a value as primary sources for learning about the social and historical milieu, and philosophical outlook, of their makers (scribes/copyists) as well as viewers. My thanks go out to the visionary Images Editors-in-Chief, Steven Fine, Margaret Olin, and Maya Balakirsky Katz, who have supported me throughout this process.

The issue paves the way for the next step in kabbalah and art research, exploring the perspectives of artists who have moved beyond the New Age synergy of the 1980s. These include artists Jonathan Leaman (b. 1954, London) and R. B. Kitaj (1932–2007). Leaman, who I present here for the first time, sought religious imagery outside of Christian iconography, and found the kabbalah to be a source “so esoteric as to encourage an infinite range of interpretation.”6 He is interested in haecceity, the “thisness” of things, that which makes objects unique. His approach to objects is not as symbols, attributes or metaphors, but as reifications, the visual or material expressions of thought. There is much to learn from his extraordinary paintings and his trajectory on objects as the key to unraveling the essence of ideas. The well-known artist Kitaj is shown by Mirjam Knotter, Chief Curator of the Joods Historisch Museum in Amsterdam, to have identified his late wife Sandra (1947–1994) with the Shekhina—the female presence of God according to the kabbalah. His erotic Los Angeles paintings focus on his reunion with her as a means of his own transition from earthly existence to death.7"

That is an interesting statement. How so? Who or what was there at that time to have that impulse?
BE MELTING SNOW. WASH YOURSELF OF YOURSELF.

YOU WANDER FROM ROOM TO ROOM
HUNTING FOR THE DIAMOND NECKLACE
THAT IS ALREADY AROUND YOUR NECK!

DANCE UNTIL YOU SHATTER YOURSELF!

THERE IS A VOICE THAT DOESN'T USE WORDS. LISTEN!

LIFE IS A BALANCE BETWEEN HOLDING ON AND LETTING GO!

LET SILENCE TAKE YOU TO THE CORE OF LIFE!

There are many examples.
Birds create nests, and some can be quite remarkable such as the bower bird.
Even lowly fish can makes nests many quite elaborate.
Chimps seem to enjoy painting.

Here's the Bower. technically it's an object to attract a mate, rather than a conventional nest.

Here's an interesting object from Makapansgat SA.
It is thought that it might be a naturally occurring stone, not carved, but recognised by early humans 3 million years ago.

The object is worn smooth indicating that it had been curated for generations, carried for some ritual or significant meaning.
