*ONLY 1 PIECE LEFT*
Unification: A Meditative Spiritual Map.

As explained by Avraham this piece partially means (a full explanation comes with the purchased piece):
"A foundational principle of Judaism is that all of what is seemingly differentiation, is in its ultimate reality – oneness. The Kabbalah explains that we are presently in the process of becoming conscious of our true nature of unity. It is explained in the Kabbalah that our present experience of separation is a temporary stage which is followed by the complete realization of oneness in the universe. The Torah describes for us the pattern through which we can realize the infinite goodness and unconditional love which is the One source of our every moment.
The form of the painting is an interplay between the form of the circle and the form of the square. The form of the square is associated with differentiation, as it has 4 different sides. The 4 sides are symbolic of 4 primary stages of spiritual development that are discussed in the Kabbalah. The shape of the circle is associated with unification and the experience of oneness. The shape of the circle is associated with the consciousness of loving our neighbor as ourselves- the realization that every point is in oneness, and that on a deep level, our neighbor is our self."
