Sustaining The Prophet – Bronze, 19 x 30
[ reference selection and link(s) below ]
Moses said to Joshua, “Choose some of our men and go out to fight the Amalekites. Tomorrow I will stand on top of the hill with the staff of God in my hands.”
So Joshua fought the Amalekites as Moses had ordered, and Moses, Aaron and Hur went to the top of the hill.
As long as Moses held up his hands, the Israelites were winning, but whenever he lowered his hands, the Amalekites were winning. When Moses’ hands grew tired, they took a stone and put it under him and he sat on it.
Aaron and Hur held his hands up-one on one side, one on the other-so that his hands remained steady till sunset. (Exodus 17:9-12)

“I love to create art. I love expressing my perception of life through the human figure. However, I feel that my love of creating art is not enough. Great art needs to be composed, designed, and show a deep understanding of the subject that is being represented. All the art I admire from the old masters to the present have these characteristics in common. My goal is to study these characteristics and apply them to my own work.
