Guglielomo Bigi Benajá was born in Milan, one of Europe's most creative and historic cities, in 1928. He later moved to Sienna where he discovered the beauty of illuminated manuscripts and took an interest in how they are created. Inspired by this art, he took a course in illuminations offered by a restorer at the Pinacoteca Nazionale of Sienna.
In his own unique art, Benajá combined the illuminations with the Hebrew alphabet, which developed in the late second millennium BCE. Drawing ideas from the Kabala, he depicted ancient Hebrew letters adorned with ornate flowers, fruits, and gold and silver, reminiscent of the Garden of Eden.
