  Artwork: Jonah
  Artist: RAANAN, Yoram
  Date: 2002-04
  Technique: Acrylic on canvas
  Notes: Jonah 2:1-4. Artist's website comment: ""In this painting of the ship in the tempest, Yoram Raanan uses a compilation of colors to portray the viciousness of the storm and the turbulence of the seas. The multi dye motif on the top of the canvas represents the sky, wind and the great fish (seen in the amidst the colors of the sky, attempting to swallow the ship), as great independent powers in the universe. These powers, despite flaunting their independent colors, still have to obey the universal order of the Almighty. The painting suggests the need for man's acceptance of God's word. Jonah uses the vehicle of the ship (seen floating in the independent power of the sea on the bottom of the canvas), to escape God's universal order. Jonah does not want to accept God's world order, but is persuaded to do so after having seen that human life and existence are impossible without God's mercy."
