The strong proud Eagle is Isaiah 40- 'comfort , comfort my people.' Verses 1-30 of Isaiah 40 are written in micro calligraphy 13 times by Ellen Miller Braun to create these cliffs and valleys. This is because the letters that spell the word 'love' in Hebrew - ahava - equal the number 13. This love echos G-d's Love for His people. 'Every valley shall be exalted and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain; and the glory of the L-rd shall be revealed…' G-d shows his love for Am Yisrael with miracles both revealed and hidden.
The last verse of Isaiah 30, verse 31, is written 208 times creating the majestic eagle. Again we see the emphasis placed on G-d's love because the number 208 is divisible by 13,'ahava,' although it leaves a remainder of three. In Judaism, the number 3 represents strength. When written in Hebrew, the word Amen has 3 letters: Aleph, mem, nun. Both the number 3 in gematria and the 3 letter word 'amen' stand for strength and permanence- which says 'I believe' -'I have faith' that this shall come to pass: '…but they that wait upon the L-rd shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary and they shall walk and not faint.' Amen.
