Divine Spark

The teal/turquoise colors represent the blue of healing combined with the green of life and earth.  White represents the purity of our soul.  In Jewish mystical tradition, each of us is surround by four Archangels, Rafael, Gabriel, Uriel, and Michael.  These angels are represented by wings quilted in each quadrant.  The center flame symbolizes the Divine Spark each of us carries within our soul.  The Purity and Divine Essence at our center are hidden beneath layers of darkness and levels of forgetfulness – the experiences and pressures of daily life.  If we open ourselves to the Divine, our potential grows and the spark within us will burn ever more brightly, raising sparks and bringing light to the world. Cotton, 96″ square, machine pieced and hand quilted (2001).  Divine Spark in is the collection of Mount Eden Retreat Center.
