Pillar of Clouds


Still carving the keyblock for American Bible Stories. Today I carved an area that includes a rainbow and some linework meant to represent the "pillar of clouds" from the Book of Exodus. As Moses and his people left Egypt and headed for the Promised Land, God led them by day as a pillar of clouds and by night by a pillar of fire. My John and Priscilla will be shown beneath this receding cloud formation.

I love those swirly clouds! They are just perfect. I'm reminded of the more formally stylised (but very puffy and swirly!) clouds on Tibetan Thangkas. I'm enjoying watching you work, as ever. :-)

Thanks Sue! I like those Thangka clouds, too.
