The two pieces are self portraits. The first one
represents my present life and the things that are most important
to me: my relationship with my creator and savior, and my joy in
worshiping him. Next, my husband, our children, and my love of Israel
and its history. The jar of anointing oil was found as a result
of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls.
My second piece represents my future, where I
will live with God in heaven forever, where there will be no more
tears or pain, And God will wipe away every tear from their
eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There
shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away,
Revelation 21:1-4. And the lion and the lamb shall lay down
together, Isaiah 11:6
the calf and the young lion
and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them.
