"The green blood of nature differs from ours only for an atom, magnesium instead of iron.
Twins of the trees and dependent upon each other. One ancestral link led to the development of the core mystical doctrines concerning the secret aspect of creation.
The tree has always been used as a symbol of life. In the Kabbalah is the program according to which there was the creation of the world, and the path of descent along which the souls and creatures have reached their present form. It is also the path slope, through which the entire creation can return to the goal which we all long: the unity of the "womb of the Creator." "Tree of Life" is the "Jacob's Ladder" (see Genesis 28), whose base is resting on the ground and its top touches the sky. By trees, reminiscent of the ancient blood pact, by the green blood creatures, the artists of the Green Blood are inspired, involving the nature in its entirety and representing its entities through a surrealistic painting."
