Matan Torah

Marc Chagall   -  
Moses receives the tablets of the Law

Moses floats over the people of Israel and Mt. Sinai and receives the tablets that are handed to him by the hands of God that protrude from a cloud. On the left, in red, the Israelites observe and have already built the Golden Calf, at the left of the mountain`s peak. On the right corner, modern Jews await redemption from the approaching angel.
