Moses Takes A Break

A copy of Michelangelo's Moses.

I don’t think that Moses ever made it to southern California but if he had, I’m sure he would have enjoyed the palms and the pure morning sun as I did the morning I took this photo.

My son, Brian, has astutely observed that this version of Moses doesn’t have the horns that Michelangelo gave the original version of this statue. It would be interesting to know why this editorial decision was made by the copyist.

To see the “real” sculpture, check out this post from a few years ago.
