Moshe Castel's inspiration for his mystical painting called "Searchers for the Messiah" is based on an incident from the life of the "Ari", one of the best known mystics from Safed.
The painting depicts the "Ari" and his followers reaching out with their arms towards the outstretched arm of the Messiah.
The other major idea expressed by Castel, that of "Everlasting Love", is seen in the forms of a man and a woman with arms interlaced in a gesture of mutual giving and radiating eternal love between them.
