Artist’s Statement: This image is an expression of the Torah portion we read on Rosh Hashanah, telling the story of the binding of Isaac (the akedah).

The akedah was the tenth and final trial that G‑d presented to Abraham. The first trials are shown as imperfect orbs, building momentum as they approach the red orb, the final trial.

The black column running through the center of the image represents the moment of silence between the two words when the Heavenly voice called out, "Abraham...Abraham!" During this moment, Abraham was transformed from having blind faith in G‑d, to having perfect faith.
