Priestly Blessing (Birchas Kohanim)
For anyone who's seen it up close, there is an ethereal quality to the mystical priestly blessing (birchas kohanim). Yet, at the ancient Kotel in Jerusalem, it's almost otherworldly.
The Priestly Blessing painting captures the drama with subtle tones that juxtapose the walls of the Kotel with the draped folds of the white prayer shaws.
At a distance, the colors appear pastel and dreamy. Up close, a shimmering array of transparent multicolored pigments reveal themselves.
