  Sgan-Cohen, Hear, All Ye People

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Laor, Liora, 02.1995

The picture is painted on a wooden rectangle with a vertical indention of 180mm X 60mm on the left. The picture has a red background that conceals another layer. At the top of the picture a symbol is painted: a circle divided into two by a horizontal line on which is written in black Hebrew block letters "Shin": ש. There is a white space in the middle of this "Shin," on which is printed in black Hebrew block "Koren" letters taken from a sticker stating "Shalom Achshav" ("Peace Now"), the word: שלום/ Peace. The text, Micah 1:2-5 is written below the symbol in ten lines in thinly painted yellow Hebrew block letters using broad lines. The first line covers the lower part of the symbol. Under the red background and Hebrew verses another layer of the same text is written in yellow. שמעו עמים כלם הקשיבי ארץ ומלאה ויהי אדני יהוה בכם לעד אדני מהיכל קדשו כי הנה יהוה יצא ממקומו וירד ודרך על במותי ארץ ונמסו ההרים תחתיו והעמקים יתבקעו כדונג מפני האש כמים מגרים במורד. Below the Hebrew text is written its translation into English in seventeen lines in blue block letters leaving red margins below. This translation reads: "Here ye peoples, all of you; hearken o earth, and all that therein is, and let the Lord god be witness against you temple. For , behold, the Lord cometh forth out of his place and will come down and tread upon the high places of the earth. And the mountains shall be molten under him and the valleys shall be cleft a wax before the as the waters that are poured down a steep place."
