Jacob`s struggles

Marc Chagall   -  
The wrestling of Jacob and the angel
Jacob wrestles with the angel and grabs him by the thigh. In the background are various scenes: Joseph is thrown into the pit by his brothers, Jacob weeps over Joseph’s coat; Jacob’s meeting with Rachel by the well, and a rooster.
