Original Watercolor Amulets
and Giclee Printed Editions

Out of her study of the Kabbalah, other writings by Jewish mystics and the Hebrew language in general, Sandi Knell Tamny learned of what the ancients perceived as the elemental powers of the Hebrew aleph-
bet itself. These "vibrations" are the material from which all of reality sprang. They are quite powerful, and gave rise to the concept of the amulet, a personal invocation of the powers of the alphabetic characters in an attempt to spiritually inspire, embolden and protect the individual. The Tamny Collection proudly displays a collection of contemporary amulets that uncover the powers of these universal forces by combining the letters in various configurations.

The Tamny Collection offers several of these extraordinary amulets in two versions. For one lucky individual, the original handpainted artwork will enhance any fine art collection. Also available is a limited, signed and numbered edition of giclee prints. Giclee (pronounced "zhee-clay") is a modern printing process where the original painting has been computer scanned, then ink-jet printed onto artists-quality pH neutral rag paper. Giclee prints are extremely faithful to the original, and make it possible for any person to enjoy the amulets at a fraction of the price of the originals. Each giclee print is delivered in a 100% acid-free museum quality rag mat, ready for framing by the purchaser to his or her own taste.

The title for this extra-large amulet comes from Exodus verses 14:19-21, wherein the 72 names of God are revealed. The 72 triads were created by combining the first letter of verse 19, the last of 20, the first of 21, and so on.  The resulting names were said to have been revealed to Moses at the Burning Bush, and uttered when he parted the Red Sea.  They are regarded to be the most powerful, magical incantations ever deciphered, and there is no good that cannot be achieved, nor evil overcome, when their powers are invoked.
