Moses Saved from the Waters

Salvador Dalí
FRAMED Dimensions:
32" x 39"
Lithograph with Engraving
In pencil

In Moses Saved from the Waters, Dalí uses both rhinoceros horns and a seashell to make a statement about the perfection of God’s plan to rescue Moses and, in a greater part, the entire nation of Israel. The bed of the Red Sea is nearly dry. Held up, above the water that remains, are the remnants of a nonspecific form saved from the waters, as were the Israelites. It is these Israelites who would produce the Christ in the line of David that led to the Church of Christ, and Christianity as a whole. The seashell rises out of the nondescript form and riding upon it is either Moses or Christ himself, King of the Jews.
