Jacob Dreams of Angels
"Jacob Dreams of Angels" is my monotype print, (1/1), with silver metal leaf, currently on exhibit at Vashon Center for the Arts Gallery, Jan 6-29, 2023 in The Notable Collection.
The Torah and the Bible tell of Jacob’s vivid dream about a stairway or ladder to heaven with angels ascending and descending. It is in this dream that the God of his grandfather Abraham and father Isaac, appears to Jacob and promises the land that he sleeps upon to his descendants and that through Jacob and his descendants that all the families of the earth shall find blessing.
What a profound dream and the ladder a powerful symbol of connection between the physical and an unknown where dreams are sourced or realized.
