Artwork description:

This painting records an oil field on fire in the desert. The title means 'to rest, settle, or dwelling place' for God.

Shek(h)inah, Shechinah, Shechina, or Schechinah (Hebrew: שְׁכִינָה‎; Arabic: السكينة‎), is the English transliteration of a Hebrew and Arabic noun meaning dwelling or settling, and denotes the dwelling or settling of the divine presence of God and His Glory.

It is interesting that at the point of first wave of attacks on Iraq and Baghdad this action was called 'Shock 'n' Awe'. Like a pillar of smoke in the desert, the oil burns as a symbol of the cost of conflict.
