This current exhibition is part of my personal exhibition, which took place in March 2019 at Draakon Gallery (“PS. The Psalms and Prophet Jonah in the
Belly of the Whale”) The Psalms or Psalter (Hebrew םי לִּ הִ תְּ tehillim, Greek ψαλμοί) is one of the most important and well-known part of the Jewish and Christian scripture. There are 150 psalms.
The central theme of the psalms is praise give to the Lord. The main task of human life is to pray and render praise. All the creation, but especially the human heart, is a temple of God. Accordig to psalms, there is a knowledge of the source and purpose of life in our hearts.
“Let my prayer arise as incense before you, the lifting up of my hands as an
evening sacrifice...” (Psalm 141:2).
Incense symbolises the love of God that he pours on us all, and the grace of the Holy Spirit, which spreads on the faithful as a good odour. A priest says when blessing the censer: “We offer you incense, O Christ our God, for an odour of spiritual fragrance. Receive it upon your heavenly altar, and send down upon us in return the grace of your all-holy Spirit”.
