Moses and Zipporah,
Mixed media including acrylic paint, ink, oil stick, and graphite on beaver board,
Signed lower right.
Interpretation: According to the Book of Exodus, the prophet Moses took a wife called Zipporah, who was an Ethiopian. Miriam, the wife of Moses's brother Aaron, disapproved of the marriage and condemned Moses for not marrying among the Israelites. God was displeased with Miriam's affront to a holy man and He punished her with leprosy for three days. Albert chose the representation of Moses and Zipporah to promote a message of love between all races. - Bonita Wagner Johnson
