'Moses & Bezalel' is one of three drawings created in 1984-85 that were the result of my beginning studies in the Book of Exodus. I was particularly drawn to Bezalel Ben Uri Ben Hur, the artist/craftsman entrusted with the design and construction of The Ark Of The Covenant and to Moses, God's messenger to Bezalel. The chapters in Exodus that describe that divine inspiration in great detail especially fueled my artistic curiosity to imagine what I might have seen had I been there millennia ago. This series of drawings would contribute to my understanding when, twenty years later, I would write and illustrate 'Between Heaven & Earth: An Illuminated Torah Commentary' (Pomegranate, 2009).
