Bringing to image the belief , the faith.This is an image telling the Old Testament story of Moses bringing the people of Israel across the desert. It is also a prayer. The whirling lines and the abstracted figurative forms are evidence of Chagall's meditative working through of the the story. We are given the pieces of the narrative we already know -- we have seen and read about but the dream like irregular pattern of the lines and the space open us to a deeper level of the story of the flight from Egypt. A story that is circular, continuous and patterned.
