Kabbalah & Tarot
The Kabbalic Tree of Life seems to be directly related to the 22 Major Arcana archetypes of the Tarot. Not so odd when you see that "Tarot" is related to "Torah" and both are seen as a library of knowledge, however the Tarot holds this in a condensed and symbolic form. This may also be why the Tarot is found all over the world. Easily transportable and unrelated to any set dogma, it reaches far and wide various peoples and cultures across the globe. The imagery of the Tarot sparks an inner knowing that grows deeper and deeper as one continues to explore and study its symbols and imagery. The image of the Kabbalic Tree of Life also sparks this process, and meditating upon it's various branches wakes one up to one's soul's true destiny.

As with all good art  the images here are to be meditated upon and enjoyed!
