And the entire Mount Sinai smoked because the L-rd had descended upon it in fire...And all the people saw the voices and the torches, the sound of the shofar, and the smoking mountain, and the people saw and trembled; so they stood from afar. (Exodus 19:18 and 20:15)

As the people gathered around Mount Sinai, a heavenly supernal light settled on top of the mountain. Here in the painting the sky radiates into shades of yellow and blue, illuminating the mountain and the multitudes of people below.

Our sages tell us that in its original form, the Torah was composed of fire, and it was from within fire that the Torah was revealed—on a mountain that was ablaze. Here in the painting the mountain glows white hot, incandescent and luminous. Every day, we are told a Heavenly Voice issues from Sinai urging us to recall how G‑d speaks to us from within the fire.
