The Sacrifice of Isaac

Ephraim Moshe Lilien   -  
Die Bucher der Bibel (page 82): Abraham and Isaac

Abraham and Isaac walk away from town on their way the mountain where the sacrifice will take place. The elderly Abraham kisses Isaac’s hand. Isaac is depicted as a little boy who carries the sacrificial wood, unconcerned. His body and the logs form of a cross.
