Moses in the Bullrushes

In Baila Feldman's later paintings she sometimes employed stylistic elements from other cultures.  In this painting "Moses in the Bullrushes" she experiments with ancient Egyptian motifs in a treatment of a story from the Old Testament Bible.  Baila's classic exhuberance is on display in the infant Moses' lifted arms and the riotous payri.
