Stepping back at the long arc of Jewish art in tandem with the history of Jewish thought gives to view a kind of cataloge. Included are black inky letters their script and configuration, rosettes and arabesques and other ornamental figures, flora and fauna, light, human and other animal bodies and body fluids, ritual objects and ordinary objects, streets and alleyways, sun and moon and stars, prey and predator, the Temple and the Land of Israel, lions, thrones and crowns, synagogue and gardens, fields and orchards, deer, doors and gates, cities and towns, scrolls and tombstones, bells and cups, gold and silver and other precious metals, cattle and goats, textiles, water, snakes and cats, rabbis and exilarchs and figures of gentile power, mountains and the sea, the color blue and reds and yellows, and angels. How these matter is the essence of Judaism. What is shown, what is visible and makes visible is posthuman life.
