Shekinah; Slide 67

And here is a lovely Shekinah painted in the 1980s by Helena Nelson-Reed.  The Shekinah’s body seems to be like a DNA spiral maybe, or a gentle spiraling undulating motion. I think she also looks very spirit-like which brings to mind Shekinah’s holy spirit aspect, a divine presence that was sometimes a pillar of fire for the Israelites and other times a presence hovering within the Ark of the Covenant. Here she looks like a divine figure appearing in the incense smoke.
