Marine biodiversity has always been my passion and I love the ocean and its inhabitants. Jellyfish have a sense of grace and their colors, form and pulsating motion fascinates me. The deep contrast between the orange of the sea nettles to the striking blue of the water made me want to replicate the same on my canvas. The way their long tentacles almost danced around in the water gave way for a perfect visual narrative.

As fascinating and graceful these jellies look, I learnt that the sea nettles that inhabit the Californian coast are medusivores, i.e they dine on other jelly species. Equipped with stinging cells within their tentacles, they have no control over what it stings however do so instantly when touched. It made me realize that nature is so complex yet beautiful and that looks can be deceiving. The long and gracious tentacles of the Sea Nettles can also be deadly. I remember watching them at the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco during my visit there.

Angels and Nature! (previously published)

The Linking Angels“And you shall make two golden cherubim; you shall make them of hammered work, from the two ends of the ark cover.” (Shemot 25:18)Among the various instructions provided for the assembling of the Mishkan in Parshat Terumah, the cherubim are quite an odd and ambiguous request. Rarely do they appear elsewhere in the Torah and never are these entities described clearly, other than their having wings and faces pointing towards the Aron Kodesh. Their purpose in Judaism and the…See More
