THE TORAH (I)
– Love, Rivalry, and Murder, He Spoke
The siblings of Genesis provide quite some material for a holy text. This first book of the Torah is full of familiar and familial dramas; three of the storytelling tapestries take place in Exodus. The siblings’ relationships are woven in few and simple shapes. I have tried to portray the brothers’ and sisters’ emotions through body language, especially positions and movements of their hands
. Hands can show temper, personalities, and attitudes. Unlike manmade tools, they are always available to connect or push away.
