Original Art of Peace #7

SOLD

No word in the Hebrew language is more graphic in its pictorial form than the word Shalom! The idea that peace originates in multiple forms is seldom considered. However, Yeshua made it clear that His Shalom was different from all other when He told His disciples, “Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.” (John 14:27) The pictographs clearly demonstrate the uniqueness of God’s approach to peace.

sThe ‘Shin’ represents two front teeth and can mean sharp, eat, consume, separate, or destroy.
LThe ‘Lamed’ is a picture of a shepherd’s staff. The shepherd used the staff to exercise authority over the sheep to direct or lead them. It can mean teach, lead, yoke, move forward, or authority.
vThe ‘Vav’ represents a tent peg or nail and means to secure or hook. But it can also simply mean peg or nail.
MThe ‘Mem’ illustrates water or waves. As a nomadic people, the Hebrews did not understand the waves or waters of the ocean. So the letter came to mean chaos, mighty, or blood.

Peace Pendant – Oxidized

Sterling silver pendant with Shalom carved artistically in ancient Hebrew pictographs on the front. The background is darkened using an oxidation process making the pictographs stand out. The back is engraved with an explanation of the word pictures showing “Destroy the authority that establishes chaos.”
While this piece is sized to be unisex, men often enjoy adding the much heavier stainless steel chain to really make this pop.

Original Art of the Aaronic Blessing

A colorfully complex work created by Marla Jean Clinesmith depicting the Ancient Hebrew letters that we know as the Aaronic Blessing from Numbers 6:22–26.

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: “Speak to Aaron and his sons, saying, ‘This is the way you shall bless the children of Israel. Say to them:
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace.”’”


The acrylic paint with metallic accents on paper artwork is 17.5″ x 23.5″, matted under glass in a beautiful gold painted 28″ x 34″ antique wooden frame.

aThe ‘Aleph’ is the picture of an ox head and illustrates the strength of an animal. It can mean strong, power, or leader.
sThe ‘Shin’ looks like two front teeth of an animal and means press, rip, or destroy.
MThe ‘Mem’ resembles waves of water and to the ancient Bedouins, that appeared as chaos.

Aleph-Shin is a root word meaning ‘fire’ or the ‘strong devourer.’ Fire could be good or bad depending on how it was used, but adding the Mem results in ‘the fire of chaos’ which defines ‘guilt.’ When sin comes into our life and we don’t deal with it properly, it can get out of control, just like a fire, and it brings guilt.
