Rebeka at the Well

Rebeka at the Well

The star of this exhibit is a 68-inch tall bronze statue of “Rebecca at the Well.” This long, lean figure won the grand prize at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens’ outdoor sculpture show.

Esther

Esther

This bronze shows the Queen with outstretched arms, as if pleading to save her people.

Ruth

Ruth

This lovely two-foot bronze shows Ruth with wheat slung over her shoulder, after gleaning in the field.

Miriam

Miriam

Moses and Aaron’s sister is referred to as the Prophetess of Joy and Creativity, and Diviner of Water for Israelites. This inspired Gissen to design her famous Miriam’s cup, using glass, bronze, and colorful enamel.

Abigail

This unique bronze shows Abigail bowing to David, but looking up in a not quite deferential pose.

Rachel Weeping For Her Children

Rachel Weeping For Her Children

The inspiration for Rachel Weeping for her Children came from verse Jeremiah 31:14: “A voice is heard on high, wailing, bitter weeping, Rachel weeps for her children; she refuses to be consoled for her children, for they are gone”.
