Oasis

May 4, 2007

From his birth until he was 13, Avram lived in the wilderness. These paintings are by Grigor Kuzmanov. This is a concept sketch of Avram’s cave.

Some distance from the cave, down in a small valley, is an oasis with a little pond. Many key moments in Avram’s life happen at the oasis.

Avram meets Utz, a self-styled, idolatrous wise man, who has hidden his ‘god of plenty’ in Avram’s oasis.

At first, Utz appears to be a wise man who knows a lot about the gods. Avram quickly realizes that Utz is nothing more than a clown who needs to be delivered from his idolatry.
