Tarot High Priestess by redqueenself
Clear

pencil drawing on 9″×11″ sketchbook paper coloured on computer…The High Priestess is identified with the Shekhinah, the female indwelling presence of the divine. She wears plain blue robes and sits with her hands in her lap. The scroll in her hands, partly covered by her mantle, bears the word TORA. She is seated between the white and black pillars—’J’ and ‘B’ for Jachin and Boaz—of the mystic Temple of Solomon. The veil of the Temple is behind her: it is embroidered with pomegranates. Further below all of that is what seems to be a body of water, most probably the sea symbolizing the unconscious.
