Path of Redemption
Three figures are depicted moving across a turbid sea of angry waves,
symbolizing the trials of exile. Each figure is wrapped in a talit,
and lit by the inner flame of their its soul- dedicated to the service
of the creator. Each figure combines a human form with the bottom half
of a fish, suggesting the ancient tradition that the righteous in holiness
are likened to fish in water. The fish allegory also derives from the
fact that the fish were spared the ravages of Noahs flood, as
the righteous will be spared the turmoil preceding the final redemption.
In accordance with their holy elevation, the three figures are seen
floating peacefully above the furious surf that does not trouble them.
