kabbala print

Over the centuries, students of Kabbalah have created graphic diagrams to depict its concepts. The sefirot, Divine emanations, are represented twice in this print. In the center is a diagram of the world of the ten sefirot composed of the initial letters of the name of each sefirah, by Moses Cordovero, Pardes Rimmonim, 1592. The sefirot, often shown as a tree, are also represented here in the vine of flowers, each with the name of a sefirah written in full.

According to the Encyclopaedia Judaica, "The common order of the sefirot and the names most generally used for them are: 1) Keter Elyon (supreme crown) or simply Keter; 2) Khokhmah (wisdom), 3) Binah (intelligence); 4) Gedullah (greatness) or Khesed (love); 5) Gevurah (power) or Din (judgement); 6) Tiferet (beauty) or Rakhamim (compassion); 7) Netsakh (lasting endurance); 8) Hod (majesty); 9) Tsaddik (righteous one) or Yesod Olam (foundation of the world); 10) Malkhut (kingdom) or Atarah (diadem)."

In this print those represented in the diagram are Keter, Khokhmah, Binah, Khesed. Gevurah, Tiferet, Netsakh, Hod, Tsaddik, Malkhut. The sefirot in the flowers are: Keter, Khokhmah, Binah, Gedullah. Gevurah, Netsakh, Hod, Tiferet, Yesod, Malkhut.

Surrounding these designs is the seventy-two-letter name of the Holy One, consisting of three-letter syllables which originate in Exodus 14:19-21.
