Elements of Magen David in the creation of Avner Bar Hama Light Reserved Only For The Righteous

According to art explorer David Sperber (translation by zeevveez):

The dimension of the kabbalistic “breaking of the tools” " appears also in Bar Hama’s new works, in which the artist looks for moments of astonishment made by phenomena of light in the nature and in architectural constructions.

Subjects such as the original sin, the deportation from paradise and the breakage of the Tablets are discussed here. This is a search of the hidden light that the world was unfit for it in the process of Genesis, according to tradition, and therefore it was concealed for the righteous to be used in the future (according to Babylonian Talmud, Hagigah 12:a).
