Elijah and the Donkey

Original Medium: Acrylic on canvas
Dimensions: 24” x 30”
Year: 2009

Based on Elijah, The Prophet, an icon at the Tretyakov Museum, this painting cycles through the colors of the Elijah’s life journey: the blue of the brook at Cherith, the yellow robe of the transfigured prophet on the mountain with Moses and Jesus, and the red/oranges of the chariot and horses of fire in a whirlwind, taking him to God. The apocryphal book Sirach begins this record of his life: And the prophet Elijah arose like a fire, and his word burned like a torch. After the summary of his life, the book of Sirach continues: No word overwhelmed him, and after death, his body prophesied. Precursor of John the Baptist, Elijah’s was the voice of the one calling in the wilderness. Elijah the Tishbite is notable for having stood on two mountains, both times to hear God speak.

Make sure you choose print dimensions consistent with dimensions of your selected artwork.
