Original Work $3750.00

A new series inspired by extreme close-ups of congealed wax textures caused by dousing a burning candle into the wine cup at the mystic End of the Sabbath or Havdala ceremony, signifying the havdala, or separation, from the holy and the secular, from light and darkness. A sardonic view of Isaiah's messianic 11:6 prophecy: "A wolf and a lamb will live (peaceably) together", referring to Israel's (the lamb) future relation to its enemies, who will be around but won't (be able to) harm. The problem now is that the "wolf" in the painting has not yet read Isaiah. Oops! POOR LAMB!
