The Mishkan and the Temple in Jerusalem are referred to as Bait throughout Jewish text. This is a sanctuary that man has to build for Hashem to rest as the sechina in the world. Every physical thing that God created in the Universe should be considered a temple.

The Hebrew letter Bet represents the house (bait). This is the external, physical world. The accent dot in the middle is the soul (nefesh). This sculptural chair encompasses the individual in the caress of the physical world, the bet itself.
