The Letter Raish

Drawing - Pencil Drawing On Paper
Otiot in pictures are images closest to the source of creation, the source of all revelation of Hashem. Pictures of this world, in contrast, are the furthest extent from His emanation; as such they actually have potential for greater revelation, according to the principle; the greater the concealment, the greater the potential for revelation. Nevertheless to succeed in such, that is; to reveal emes in images of this world is extremely difficult, and the failures in such are disastrous and this is the catastrophe of avodah zara, that is; the images remain detached from their true source, for the artist is incapable of elevating correctly through all the levels from such a far distance, his spiritual capabilities are insufficient the connect the lowest with the highest, as this is the province of only the greatest Tzaddikim. Therefore a viewer of these images is unable to connect to the “First Cause”, blessed is He ,through them, rather to some intermediate ‘cause’.
But drawing of otiot, one is connected absolutely to the Original Source, blessed is He.
