The Concept: Spiritual Ascent
The Source: The 15 Psalms of Ascent
Psalms (Ch 120-134)
The Design: The buildings rise up in narrowing rows toward the top of the picture. The buildings symbolize wealth, the sun – might, and the menorah wisdom. Thus, the spirituality of each row becomes narrower, until the peak of spirituality is reached at the top of the highest
house, on which stands the menorah.
