Genesis 23:1 – 25:28
Isaac was a student of the esoteric mysteries and in front of him here are the symbols of the 10 sephirot. There is a sexual aspect to this study as well, uniting the spiritual and the physical, hence his erection.
Rebecca his future wife was brought to him on a camel and when she saw him, she was so struck by his presence and a feeling of the angel around him, that she fell from the camel. It is told that the angels of both these beings brought them together and they hover above the couple. They have the six wings that are spoken of in Ezekiel’s vision. The color of their skin and other angels that are in subsequent pieces is purple violet reflecting the color associated with the Kabbalist world of Formation – Yetzirah. According to Kabbalah, we exist in four worlds simultaneously. The first one Asiyah is the temporal conditional world of time and space whose color is red. Above and coterminous is Yetzirah that might be understood as the world of angels and dreams and the color associated with this world is purple/violet.
