EXODUS is a Genuine Signed and Dated Ari Roussimoff Oil on Canvas Painting, measuring a Very Large Sized approx. 31 1/2 x 47 1/2 inches. “EXODUS”, an Important work painted in Europe in the year 1981, speaks poignantly to the strength and resilience of the Jewish people. It is a work that is highly symbolic and surreal in its imagery. A Monumental figure of Moses leads his People, Israel out of the Ashes of what was once Europe. Theirs is a world in total ruins. Leaving behind much pain and suffering these survivors go forward into the future with much faith and hope. Behind them is an apocalyptic landscape of destroyed buildings and barbed wire. The bitter legacy of persecution. Spirits of the recent past hover in the backround. There appear two images of the great Leader Moses. One of them is larger then life. He is representative of God’s wonderful promises. He shows his people the way as specified by the Holy Bible, the single authoratative document that supercedes any and all “secular” government decrees. Standing beside this large Moses is a much smaller figure of Moses. This second Moses laments, because he knows that although the great prophecies will be fulfilled, the road ahead may still be difficult. The artist counts this fabulous painting among his true religiously inspired works. It is rendered in exquisite colouring and high detail. A Gorgeous and Spiritual Work of Art.
