The Magen David Series - Parting of the Waters
Of all the miracles chronicled in the Torah, the one that is perhaps most dramatic is the Parting of the Waters at the Sea of Reeds. With the Egyptian army swiftly decending on the newly freed nation of Israel, G-d, through his servant Moses, parts the water and allows over a million people to cross safely on dry land.
This painting is an abstract representation of the magnificence of the event. Blue waves are parted by a Magen David of orange flames, flames that recall the angel that lit the way for the Jews in the desert.
