William Blake TarotLikened to Ezekiel's prophetic biblical vision, these heavenly eye-studded gyres signify not just God's glory but everything that is beyond man's understanding. In response, man can only kneel and humbly acknowledge the divine workings of the universe. The angels stand behind two gyres forming the sign of infinity, and represent the four Zoas; in viewing them we see ourselves as a portion of the divine plan. The nearest orb has parallel arcs that pass through the body of the kneeling worshipper: the orb with eyes signifies that man is part of the divine plan; the black orb without eyes means he is still impaled on Blake's "circle of destiny," the materialist round of cause and effect. Which orb he chooses is determined by each individual's pro.
