"Har Sinai" (private collection)
This is inspired by the Jewish Holiday of Shavuos that we recently celebrated when Moses brought the Torah down from Mount Sinai.
The flame represents the powerful impact on the Jewish people as they received the Torah and their souls leapt from their bodies as they heard the first two commandments given by G-d. The experience of hearing the voice of G-d was so intense that they begged Moses to deliver the other 8 commandments.
