The Exodus by GENZOMAN The Exodus by GENZOMAN
This is a old commission work done 2 years ago or so.

The exodus is maybe one of my favorite biblical tales. Why? well, not just is one of the most "feel the God´s power!!!" tales of the whole book... Also cause is one of the most political: Freedom of will and mind of people against a state (they was just a cheap workers for the Pharaoh and the Egyptian economical system). this sound familiar? well, the economical system of the world didn't change a lot since the old times, uh? :D

My greetings to those who celebrate this week :)

---------------------o-----------------------

Let´s Wikiattack!!

The Exodus (Greek word έξοδος, (Hebrew: יציאת מצרים, Modern Yetsi'at Mitzrayim Tiberian jəsʕijaθ misʕɾajim ; "the exiting of Egypt") is the story of the departure of the Israelites from ancient Egypt described in the Hebrew Bible. Narrowly defined, the term refers only to the departure from Egypt described in the Book of Exodus; more widely, it takes in the subsequent wanderings in the wilderness described in the books of Numbers and Deuteronomy.

According to the Book of Exodus, Moses was born in a time when his people, the Children of Israel, were increasing in number and the Egyptian Pharaoh was worried that they might help Egypt's enemies. Moses' Hebrew mother, Jochebed, hid him when the Pharaoh ordered all newborn Hebrew boys to be killed. He ended up being adopted into the Egyptian royal family. After killing an Egyptian slave-master, Moses fled across the Red Sea to Midian where he tended the flocks of Jethro, a priest of Midian on the slopes of Mt. Horeb. After the Ten Plagues were unleashed on Egypt, Moses led the Exodus of the Hebrew people out of Egypt and across the Red Sea, after which they based themselves at Mount Sinai and compassed the borders of Edom. It was at this time that Moses received the Ten Commandments.

The Book of Leviticus records the construction of the tabernacle and the laws of God. The book of Numbers tells the Israelites, led now by God, journey onwards from Sinai towards Canaan, but when their spies report that the land is filled with giants they refuse to go on. Yahweh then condemns them to wander in the desert until the generation that left Egypt passes away. The book of Deuteronomy tells how the Israelites arrive at the borders of Canaan, where Moses recalls their journeys and gives them new laws. His death (the last reported event of the Torah) concludes the 40 years of the exodus from Egypt.

There are many well-known incidents in the story of the Exodus, but some of the most famous include: the crossing of the Red Sea; the revelation at Sinai; the giving of the Tablets of Law; the incident of the golden calf; the gift of manna in the desert; the rock of Meribah; the treachery of the Amalekites; the incident at Baal-Peor; the story of Balaam and his talking donkey; and the story of the scouting of Canaan.

Y'know, they WOULD follow him for 40 years in the Wilderness if he looked like that.  Great dynamism and energy.

You do know Moses never crossed the Red Sea? Don't you? The Greeks got the translation wrong. It is not the RED Sea, but the REED Sea. It's true. Check your Bibles. It's in there.

Ah, good ol' Pentateuch. 

FRom it, I learned many irreplaceable lessons such as: If I ever get enslaved, allying with a moody deity is NOT the way to solve it... He'll kill you  horribly.

If they are going to make movies on bible stories use the badass moments like this. Their are many instances where it is appropriate to scream "Feel the power of Heaven!"

I find this art piece very amazing, the reason being is that I have Levite heritage all the way down to Judaea, all up to today. very nice work. it looks like it was almost impossible to make. in other words, it's nice to see a masterpiece of one of my greats.

skin color and age seems a bit off given the region...and I'm not sure, I'll correct this later if I'm wrong, but I believe he was younger than the way you've portrayed him...also for some reason I think his hair was probably shorter, but my memory has a way of annoying the crap out of me.
