reflection: black.sabbath
Love the spray paint shadow effect. The black metal band.. yeah. Not interested in THAT, more in the word 'sabbath': generally used to mean 'a day in the week set aside for worship and observance of religious duties'. More interestingly, its context in the 'sky religions': Judaism, Christianity and Islam. (*Buddhism, Taoism, Hinduism etc. are known as the 'terrestrial religions' as they are more human-made set of philosophies than 'divine preachings'.)
Notice how the world's stock exchange revolves around Judaism's Sabbath on Saturdays, and virtually all schhol and work schedule follows the Christian Sabbath on Sundays. The Muslim's Sabbath, by the way, is on Fridays when they go to mosques for sermon (mass) and prayers.
