Jerusalem’s spinning top (Sevivon)

I finished a new painting and decided to show several stages of this work.
I hope, someone will be interested …
Sevivon – spinning top, which children play in the holiday of Hanukkah. In the mystical tradition sevivon, among other things, symbolizes the wheel of history, our hopes and choice.
