Moses Law Giver Link


We are now offering for the very first time, a select group of major monumental-sized Roussimoff works dating back to the 1970’s. These extraordinary works have in the past been featured in some of the artist’s most important art gallery exhibitions. “MOSES THE LAWGIVER” is a Genuine Signed and Dated (1973) Early Ari Roussimoff Oil on Canvas Painting, measuring a huge 40 x 50 inches. This is an amazing and highly symbolic representation of Moses. This outstanding portrait of “MOSES THE LAWGIVER” is a contemporary interpretation of the great leader of the Nation of Israel. He is seen in two stages on Mount Sinai. On the top of the canvas, we witness Moses’ communication with the Almighty. In the foreground is Moses, presenting the Commandments to not only his people, but to the entire world. Glowing rays of light beam from his majestic head. The artist has chosen to depict but one major commandment as representative of all the others. On the tablets, one finds the following words written in the Hebrew language: “I AM THE L-RD THY G-D. THOU SHALT HAVE NO OTHER GODS BUT ME”. The figure of Moses is painted with extreme dignity and shows a wise and intensely spiritual leader, a true visionary and prophet. As he is painted with dynamic Byzantine inspired forms and glowingly poetic colours, Moses is depicted as a very human and living image. This is a work of great Sensitivity and Incredible Power. A Painting that is Timeless and Universal in Appeal.
