kabbalah

Stone relief of a Seraphim carved into a wall

The Serafim or “Fiery Ones” are serpent-like fire angels of incomprehensible size with six wings and sixteen faces. There is one for each of the four winds and they are reborn each new day from the river of light that flows from the Throne of Glory. In Kabbalah they are the higher angels of the first created divine realm of Beriah where they continually burn themself up into nothingness. Image: Tamarah Hayardeni

According to Kabbalah, when a person’s body decomposes or is cremated, a tiny bone at the base of the spine, called the luz, always remains intact. When the dead are resurrected, their physical bodies will reconstitute from this seed-like bone. Image: J. Gamelin, 1778⠀

She eats souls of the damned (pictured). Demons of this realm are horned and wear veils that cover hideous eyes. Art by Eve Harms. ⠀
