"Tom's Man" as "Adam Qadmon"

"sephirot", or divine emanations, are a theoretical framework used by Qabbala (Jewish mysticism) to explain the relationship of the Ineffable to the mundane world, and of the visible and nonvisible universes. The sephirot are often shown in relation to the human form, reflecting the connection of body and soul.

Below, they are superimposed on a form drawn by Tom of Finland, the well-known erotic artist.


The sephirot are pictured from the perspective of Tom's Man rather than the viewer, i.e. those normally pictured on the left are here shown on the right, and vice versa.
