Alef-bet Magenta

Alexandra Harris's avatar Alexandra Harris

About the work: Shown in three calligraphic styles, this Hebrew Alef-bet includes Sephardic, cursive and Ashkenazic lettering. It is also a color study, with a magenta theme, and certain of the letters are illuminated in gold leaf. Those with knowledge of Hebrew and biblical discernment will be able to unlock the mystery contained in the illuminated letters! About Alexandra Harris: I am a local artist who has studied at the Univesity of Michigan, Art Students League, School of Visual Arts (NYC), and at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center; and would say (along with G.K. Chesterton, who said it first): “The Arts exist to show forth the glory of God; and to awaken and keep alive the sense of wonder in man.”
