I have done a number of works over the years of Moses- this one is the most non-figurative one. With this version I was more interested in the formalities of composition and style rather than any true illustration of the Biblical scene beyond tits basic ingredients. The piece of wood for me summons up both Egyptian funeral barges and the linearities of hieroglyphs- the white corrugated rectangle at bottom always and still does reminded me of the ancient Egyptian carved walls depicting Hippopatamus hunts.
